Indico Event Management

The open source software Indico developed by Cern is a web application. Lectures, meetings and conferences can be created using Indico. Three different event types (lecture, meeting and conference) can be created in Indico.

Lecture: A lecture can contain a presentation and be given with several speakers or one speaker.

Meeting: Usually a meeting consists of several presentations. The duration of a meeting can vary: a meeting can last one day or several days, with a meeting often taking place on one day. It is possible that contributions are organized in meetings. Minutes can also be added to a meeting.

Conference: A conference usually lasts a few days and several meetings can be held at the same time. Conferences also have the advantage that they enable flexible workflows for the processing of abstracts and documents.

Participants can be managed for all three types of events. Registrations, the use of collaborative tools and surveys are also possible. Reminder emails can also be used for events.
