LaTeX-Beamer themes for FAU Corporate Identity

The FAU administration provides only templates for commercial software and, in particular, does not support the use of the de-facto standard tool in scientific publications: LaTeX.
Based on the Corporate Design Manual I created three beamer themes that can be used to create (scientific) posters or presentations using LaTeX and the beamer package.

All three themes are based on the same inner-, outer-, color- and font-themes and modify only the paper format and positioning of elements. Feel free to derive further formats and send me the style-file to include it here.

Template files

All required style-files, images and examples for each of the three themes are provided as a ZIP-file:
FAU LaTeX Template (Version: 2016-07-12).

All files are tested using pdflatex from TeXlive 2014. In case of any problems or questions, please write me an email.
