Please complete your code snippet until it becomes a complete document showing a typical frame exhibiting the problem, and remove the information that is not essential to the problem mentioned (surely most of all those loaded packages are not relevant here). – Gonzalo Medina Oct 8 '12 at 16:45

the problematic package is "biblist". – pippigreco Oct 8 '12 at 17:34
\documentclass{beamer} \usetheme{Warsaw} \usefonttheme{default} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{biblist} \begin{document} \title[Warsaw_Date]{Warsaw_Date} \author[]{} \institute[]{} \date[]{} \frame{ \titlepage } \frame{ \frametitle{Warsaw} The date is hidden under the title `Warsaw'. } \frame{ Here the date is visible, like in the initial slide. } \end{document} – pippigreco Oct 8 '12 at 17:34
@pippigreco What isn't clear is why one should load biblist in a Beamer presentation: it's a package for "pretty printing" bibliography databases and has no use in a normal document. – egreg Oct 8 '12 at 18:08

biblist defines an even/odd header by default. To remove this, redefine it after loading biblist:

\usepackage{biblist}% http://ctan.org/pkg/biblist
\def\@oddhead{}% Formerly {\reset@font\rm \hfil \leftmark \quad (\today)}
\def\@evenhead{}% Forerly {\reset@font\rm (\today)\quad \ignorespaces \rightmark \hfil}
