I write articles and reports using LaTeX2e. But LaTeX cannot create "beautiful" presentations which we can see now at scientific conferences. What package is the most suitable for creation of modern presentations (with mathematical formulas, i.e. need compatibility with LaTeX)?

Nearly everyone I see at conferences uses Powerpoint. You can create equations/formulas with an equation editor such as MathType.

Its possible to create the presentation like MS powerpoint using LaTex.... use the following
\documentclass[ps,final,contemporain,slideColor,colorBG,accumulat e,nototal]{prosper} You might need to install the 'prosper' inside your LaTex installation... Try googling... you will get a lot of info abt the same....... Cheers, ramp

I use the foiltex package for presentation (a pdflatex package). I also heard that Beamer was quite good. Try googling these two things.

Here are some nice softwares:
OpenOffice: Very good alternative to MS Word. You can use Equation Editor to produce TeX quality equations and insert them into OpenOffice documents by drag and drop. Texmacs: An excellent WYSIWYG editor which produces TeX quality equations. MagicPoint: A very simple but effective presentation tool. You can call LaTeX to produce equations.

I have gone through the presentation packages for latex (foiltex,pdfscreen,pdfslide,seminar,slides,texpowe r,prosper) some time ago, but I have found a beamer the best one. It comes with pgf and xcolor packageges also. Check the following side:

Thanks a lot for replies. I'll try beamer et al. It is also interesting is "Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional" applied for scientific presentations (with math equations)?

mathematical symbols makes no problem for beamer. The resulting equations could be viewed even with Adobe Reader 4. Actually, videos could be used with beamer package, but I have never used them.
