Direc­tory tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/sciposter

This collection of files contains LaTeX packages for posters of ISO A3
size and larger (ISO A0 is the default size). American paper sizes and
custom paper is supported. In particular, poster.cls defines a
document class which allows cutting and pasting most of an article to
a poster without any editing (save reducing the size). A (pdf) manual is 
included as well.

NOTE that this version does work for LaTeX, not just pdfLaTeX, as in
previous versions. However, xdvi produces strange results, though a 
recent version of dvips does create good ps-files from the dvi files.

Also note that logos must either be put in the current working directory
or in the directories of your LaTeX distribution. For some reason 
graphicspath settings are ignored. 

An example can be found in the sciposterexample directory.

sci­poster – Make posters of ISO A3 size and larger

This col­lec­tion of files con­tains LaTeX pack­ages for posters of ISO A3 size and larger (ISO A0 is the de­fault size). Amer­i­can pa­per sizes and cus­tom pa­per are sup­ported. In par­tic­u­lar, sci­poster.cls de­fines a doc­u­ment class which al­lows cut­ting and past­ing most of an ar­ti­cle to a poster with­out any edit­ing (save re­duc­ing the size) — see the man­ual.

Sci­poster does work for LaTeX, not just pdfLaTeX. How­ever, xdvi pro­duces strange re­sults, though a re­cent ver­sion of dvips does cre­ate good ps-files from the dvi files.

Also note that lo­gos must ei­ther be put in the cur­rent work­ing di­rec­tory or in the di­rec­to­ries of your LaTeX dis­tri­bu­tion. For some rea­son graph­ic­spath set­tings are ig­nored.
