How to use indico

Dear Organizer,
please find below a simple instruction that warrants consistency with Conference4me agenda assistance.
We import basic elements of your conference agenda from Indico to Conference4me application. Indico is a complex tool and not all features are supported.

To edit the agenda login to indico, select your conference and add new session

Add presentations (in indico they call them: contributions) to session

Indico has some issues you should avoid to let us correctly synchronize indico with Conference4me system.

  • Don’t change the timezone of the event
  • Don’t add block to sessions. Use new session instead of session blocks
  • Session cannot start in one day and end in another. In such a case please add two or more separated sessions.
  • If you want to add breaks like “Coffee break”, “Lunch” etc. don’t add them as Break, but as normal Session (point 1.) with the name like “Coffee break” etc. Indico does not export blocks of type Break.
  • Please do not create new contribution types
  • Session chairs in Indico are known as conveners. You can add them while creating/editing session.
