I am trying to put the name of the institution in a beamer presentation


However I get the error that it is an undefined control sequence. What possibly is the mistake?

The right command is \institute{...} (see as reference the beameruserguide section 10.1 Adding a Title Page).

A better way to proceed is:


\title{My title}
\author{My name}
\institute{My institute}
