Indico-SPMS merge

Members of the JACoW team are working with Indico staff at CERN to incorporate the capabilities of SPMS into Indico, with the ultimate goal of retiring SPMS. The merge is complex and is expected to be a multiyear project.

What is Indico?

The CERN Document Server Software Consortium developed a web application for scheduling and organizing events--from simple lectures to complex workshops and conferences--with sessions and contributions. The tool also includes an advanced user delegation mechanism and allows paper reviewing, archival of conference information, and electronic proceedings. The Indico software was originally developed in the framework of the EU InDiCo project.

Comments and ideas

Example - Publication of proceedings

Before any contribution is to be published online, it has to pass through this workflow:

Abstract Submission -> Acceptance -> Files Upload -> (Refereeing) -> Paper Editing -> Green Dot -> Paper QA -> (poster presented, satisfactory and manned) -> pre-publication -> wrappers, latest checks, headings and footers -> Proceedings

vrws: Scientific Program Administration > Generate Paper TOC Values (page 28)

The comment about the function of this procedure is wrong. TOC.html has nothing to do with this procedure.

Generate Paper TOC Values: generate the 'Table of Contents' by assigning the starting page number to each paper depending on the given number of pages.

This function is used for the final proceedings to populate the fields <pages>x</pages> and <toc>yyy</toc> in the XML.
