I have a poster presentation at a conference coming up. I know I can use other software to create a poster. However, I would like to use Latex since I have some mathematics involved. Is there a template that would work for me? My poster will go on a board of size 4' high and 8' across.

Any help would be appreciated?

  • Many people seem to use baposter. Feb 21, 2020 at 23:33
  • Will it be okay for 4 by 8 board? Or do I need to adjust the size?

You could use the baposter class.

You can adjust the fontscale option until you are happy with the font sizes.


(Don't you love the default colours?)




}{}{Poster Title}{Poster Author}

\headerbox{Highlighted box}{name=box1}{\lipsum[1-2]}

\headerbox{Highlighted box}{below=box1}{%
  \tiny tiny\par
  \scriptsize scriptsize\par
  \footnotesize footnotesize\par
  \small small\par
  \normalsize normalsize\par
  \large large\par
  \Large Large\par
  \Huge Huge\par

\headerbox{Highlighted box}{column=1}{\lipsum[3-4]}

\headerbox{Highlighted box}{column=2}{\lipsum[4-5]}

\headerbox{Highlighted box}{column=3}{\lipsum[6-7]}
