Welcome to TikZposter class

TikZposter is a LaTeX class to create scientific posters in an efficient way. It uses TikZ to provide graphics for the different poster elements. A main goal of TikZposter is the allocation of dynamic and easy to change posters. Hence, all poster elements (background, title, blocks, ...) can be adapted in a simple way.
