I am using baposter to prepare my poster. I am trying to put affiliations below the authors' names - here's my try:

\documentclass[landscape,paperwidth=48in,paperheight=96in,fontscale=0.285]{baposter} % Adjust the font scale/size here

\usepackage{graphicx} % Required for including images
\graphicspath{{figures/}} % Directory in which figures are stored

\definecolor{lightblue}{rgb}{0.145,0.6666,1} % Defines the color used for content box headers

\begin{document}

\begin{poster}
{
headerborder=closed, % Adds a border around the header of content boxes
colspacing=1em, % Column spacing
bgColorOne=white, % Background color for the gradient on the left side of the poster
bgColorTwo=white, % Background color for the gradient on the right side of the poster
borderColor=lightblue, % Border color
headerColorOne=black, % Background color for the header in the content boxes (left side)
headerColorTwo=lightblue, % Background color for the header in the content boxes (right side)
headerFontColor=white, % Text color for the header text in the content boxes
 boxColorOne=white, % Background color of the content boxes
textborder=roundedleft, % Format of the border around content boxes, can be: none, bars, coils, triangles, rectangle, rounded, roundedsmall, roundedright or faded
eyecatcher=true, % Set to false for ignoring the left logo in the title and move the title left
headerheight=0.1\textheight, % Height of the header
headershape=roundedright, % Specify the rounded corner in the content box headers, can be: rectangle, small-rounded, roundedright, roundedleft or rounded
headerfont=\Large\bf\textsc, % Large, bold and sans serif font in the headers of content boxes
%textfont={\setlength{\parindent}{1.5em}}, % Uncomment for paragraph indentation
linewidth=2pt % Width of the border lines around content boxes
}
%---------------------------------------------------------------------
%   TITLE SECTION 
%--------------------------------------------------------------------
{\includegraphics[height=4em]{logo1}} % First university/lab logo on the left
{\bf\textsc{Title: \\ subtitle}\vspace{0.3em}} % Poster title
{\textsc{Name1$^{\ast,\S}$, Name2$^{\dagger}$, Name3$^{\ast}$ \& Name4$^{\ast,\S}$} \hspace{12pt} } %Authors
{\footnotesize\itshape $^{\ast}$University of Connecticut, $^{\S}$CT Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences, $^{\dagger}$NYU Abu Dhabi} % <----------- Institution: how to put this below author's names?
{\includegraphics[height=6em]{logo2}} % Second university/lab logo on the right

which doesn't compile as wanted. Do you guys have any idea of how to do this? Thanks!

  • I don't have the class available to me, but you could express your title with teh stackengine package as \bfseries\scshape\stackunder{Title:}{subtitle} – Steven B. Segletes Sep 13 '17 at 19:40

The title section syntax are: {left image} {Poster title} {Poster authors} {right image}. Thus, four items need to be specified, each enclosed in {}. The affiliations need to be included inside {Poster authors}. It is not possible to just insert a new specification {affiliations}, which is what the MWE tries to do.

So, writing {authors \\ affiliations} will get the job done. Since each of the title section contents is a node, you can construct them in any way you wish. For example, if you had two authors, each with a different affiliation you could write:

{ % Authors and affiliations
\begin{tabular}{ll}
author 1 & affiliation 1 \\
author 2 & affiliation 2
\end{tabular}
} % End of author and affiliations

This approach requires more vertical space so instead of using headerheight=0.1\textheight you might need, say, headerheight=0.12\textheight.

I didn't use that approach here, and just stayed with the format indicated by what was posted. Only a small change is required. Instead of:

{\textsc{Name1$^{\ast,\S}$, Name2$^{\dagger}$, Name3$^{\ast}$ \& Name4$^{\ast,\S}$} \hspace{12pt} } %Authors
{\footnotesize\itshape $^{\ast}$University of Connecticut, $^{\S}$CT Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences, $^{\dagger}$NYU Abu Dhabi} % <----------- Institution: how to put this below author's names?

you need:

{\textsc{Name1$^{\ast,\S}$, Name2$^{\dagger}$, Name3$^{\ast}$ \& Name4$^{\ast,\S}$} \hspace{12pt} } %Authors
{\footnotesize\itshape $^{\ast}$University of Connecticut, $^{\S}$CT Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences, $^{\dagger}$NYU Abu Dhabi} % <----------- Institution: how to put this below author's names?

The corrected code deletes the } before %Authors and the { before \footnotesize.

This is the result:

This is the MWE:
