Scientific Presentations with LaTeX
Abstract: In this article, we show how scientific presentations can be created based on the KOMA-Script document class scrartcl. The main advantage of the suggested approach is that the presentation slides allow for easy copy-and-paste of content from other LaTeX documents such as research papers or handouts. Using this approach, presentation slides are quickly generated, without the author having to learn how to use other LaTeX presentation packages. Additionally, in contrast to the rather overused templates of the more common presentation packages, the slides can be individually created and thus tailored to the topic of the presentation.
