I came across this example that shows how to use affiliations in tikzposter using authblk package.

I would like to do something similar, but having several institutions with relatively short names - I would like to save space on the top of the poster and keep them in one line.

How can that be achieved?

  • Some code would be nice. We have no idea how you have adapted the code in the example.

  • I used the code 'asis' from the question & answer I linked to. Should I repost it here?

Add the following lines after loading the package authblk.

\usepackage{authblk} % improved author and affiliation design
\makeatletter
\renewcommand\maketitle{\AB@maketitle} % revert \maketitle to its old definition
\renewcommand\AB@affilsepx{\quad\protect\Affilfont} % put affiliations into one line
\makeatother
\renewcommand\Affilfont{\Large} % set font for affiliations

enter image description here

\documentclass[25pt]{tikzposter}
\usepackage{authblk} % improved author and affiliation design
\makeatletter
\renewcommand\maketitle{\AB@maketitle} % revert \maketitle to its old definition
\renewcommand\AB@affilsepx{\quad\protect\Affilfont} % put affiliations into one line
\makeatother
\renewcommand\Affilfont{\Large} % set font for affiliations

\usetheme{Desert}

%Set title authors and institute
\title{\parbox{\linewidth}{\centering ULTRA LONG TITLE NO ONE BOTHERS   TO    READ}}

\author[1,2]{John Doe}
\author[2]{Jane Doe}

\author[3,4]{James Doe}
