I am making a conference poster using a template provided in this link. http://www.njohnston.ca/2009/08/latex-poster-template/

I want to reduce the size of the header area ( Title area), may be by reducing the font size and spacing. How can I change those parameters?

As @cmhughes pointed out in his comment, you can tweak the beamerthemeconfposter.sty. Just include the following lines somewhere after \usetheme{confposter}. The lines you might first want to try changing them are marked with % CHANGE this line ...

%==============================================================================
% build the poster title
%==============================================================================
\setbeamertemplate{headline}{
 \leavevmode
  \begin{columns}
   \begin{column}{\linewidth}
    \vskip1cm
    \centering
    \usebeamercolor{title in headline}{\color{jblue}
        \Huge % CHANGE this line for the size of the title
        {\textbf{\inserttitle}}\\[0.5ex]}
    \usebeamercolor{author in headline}{\color{fg}
        \Large % CHANGE this line for the size of the author
        {\insertauthor}\\[1ex]}
    \usebeamercolor{institute in headline}{\color{fg}
        \large % CHANGE this line for the size of the institut
        {\insertinstitute}\\[1ex]}
    \vskip1cm
   \end{column}
   \vspace{1cm}
  \end{columns}
 \vspace{0.5in} % CHANGE this line for the space between your title and the horizontal rule
 \hspace{0.5in}\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=47in,colsep=0.15cm]{cboxb}\end{beamercolorbox}
 \vspace{0.1in} % CHANGE this line for the space between your horizontal rule and your main body
}
