➀ Creating an Event Page

Getting started

Events can be of certain types. You can switch the event type any time after the event creation.

Attention

If the new event type has less features, than the old one, the missing features get deactivated and the according configuration are stored in the background.

Available Event types

  • Lectures

    can be seen as a single session, with one or more speakers

  • Meetings

    are usually composed of multiple sessions. They have a timetable. Contributions (talks) and can be organized in sessions

  • Conferences

    generally last multiple days and have the advantage over meetings of allowing multiple sessions to happen in parallel. They also offer flexible abstract and paper reviewing/editing workflows

Indico type

All of these meeting types offer a set of common features, such as:

  • Registration
  • Management of participants
  • Surveys
  • Integration with collaborative tools
