In the following title slide, I want to include some graphics at the bottom, but they are cut off. Is there some way I can reduce the vertical space between the \author{} block and the \date{} block. I've tried inserting \vspace{-10pt} in various places.

What I'm getting:

Here is my MWE:

\documentclass[10pt,table]{beamer} 
\mode<presentation>
{
  \usetheme{Copenhagen}
  \useoutertheme{infolines}
  \setbeamercovered{transparent}
}

% -- this doesn't work
% \usepackage{tikz}
% \newcommand\RBox[1]{%
%   \tikz\node[draw,rounded corners,align=center,]{#1};%
% }

\newcommand\RBox[1]{%
  {#1}
}

I'd suggest you to inside a \raisebox hiding the height and depth (second and third optional arguments=0pt) so you can freely move it upwards; I also suppressed the navigation symbols locally for the title page:

\date[CARME2015]{\raisebox{0.5cm}[0pt][0pt]{\parbox[t]{\linewidth}{\centering CARME 2015 \\ Naples, September 20--23, 2015 \\
\footnotesize{Slides: \url{http://datavis.ca/papers/CARME2015-2x2.pdf}}}}}

The complete code:

\documentclass[10pt,table]{beamer} 
\mode<presentation>
{
  \usetheme{Copenhagen}
  \useoutertheme{infolines}
  \setbeamercovered{transparent}
}

% -- this doesn't work
% \usepackage{tikz}
% \newcommand\RBox[1]{%
%   \tikz\node[draw,rounded corners,align=center,]{#1};%
% }

\newcommand\RBox[1]{%
  {#1}
}

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
