I am trying to create a poster using tikzposter class. Is there a way to display author's email address just below the author's affiliation?

The tags \title,\author, \institute already exist in tikzposter but nothing like \email. You can customize the title according to the manual in the following way:

\settitle{ 
\centering 
\vbox{
\vspace*{2em}    
\centering
{\bfseries\sffamily\fontsize{80pt}{96pt}\selectfont\@title\par}
\vspace*{1em}{\huge\sffamily \@author \par} 
\vspace*{1em}{\Large\sffamily \@institute\par}
%\@titlegraphic \\
%[\TP@titlegraphictotitledistance] 
}}

So I guess all it takes is to define something like \@email.

  • Welcome to TeX.SE. Could you provide some code example of what you have? Feb 23 '16 at 13:38
  • It would be a lot simpler just to replace \@title with the title, etc. (Frankly, easier than explaining how to make this work with \@email.) Feb 23 '16 at 16:54
  • I liked the template of fancytikz better. It looks more elegant.

The simplest workaround is to add the e-mail as part of the \institute, seeing as you wanted it immediately below the affiliation.

\documentclass{tikzposter} 
\title{Something or other}
\author{A Bloke}
\institute{Department of Complete Nonsense\\[0.5cm] \url{bloke@nonsense.edu}}
\usepackage{url}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}

  • I don't think this is the most simple workaround, but the very correct way to do it.

  • Though there could be a tiny bit of extra vertical space between them.

  • @Johannes_B You could probably argue that defining an \email macro as hinted at in the question is a more 'proper' way of doing it, but this is certainly a lot less work. May 16 '16 at 14:10
  • @Johannes_B Better? May 16 '16 at 14:11
  • That would be work for the maintainer of the class. When it comes to titles, i prefer to do them by hand as long as it is possible.
