On Thu, 23 Feb 2006 Matthias Mühlich submitted the package


to CTAN.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/coverpage
Summary description: automatic cover page creation for scientific papers (with BibTeX data and copyright notice)
License type: pd

Announcement text:
The package coverpage was created to supplement scientific papers
with a cover page containing bibliographical information, a copyright
notice, and/or some logos of the author's institution. The cover page is
created (almost) automatically; this is done by parsing BibTeX
information corresponding to the main document and reading a configuration
file in which the author can set information like the affiliation he or
she is associated with.

The cover page consists of header, body and footer; all three are macros
which can be redefined using \renewcommand, thus allowing easy
customization of the package. Additionally, it should be stressed that the
cover page layout is totally independent of the main document and
its page layout (which is not the easiest thing to achieve in LaTeX).

This package requires four other packages (keyval, url, textcomp, and verbatim),
but all of them are standard packages and should be part of every LaTeX installation.

Thanks for the upload.
