# Add collaborators' name in beamer title slide

How to add collaborators' name (perhaps their respective institute also) in the title slide for beamer?

I don't want them to appear at the bottom of every slide.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Heiko Oberdiek Jun 6 '14 at 17:03
• Use the optional for authors. \author[short author names]{author names}. – Sigur Jun 6 '14 at 17:05

Use the optional argument to \author.
\author[short author names]{author names}
