Instructions for SSI Speakers

Indico Setup

We are using the CERN Indico system for the SSI agenda and collection of slides. All speakers will be setup with CERN Indico login with access to upload talks directly themselves. The SSI-2014 agenda can be found at http://indico.cern.ch/event/ssi2014 and the timetable view should give a detailed time table view. Using the top right corner orange "login" button to login to Indico will show you username if succeeded. For speakers not yet had an Indico userID, the SSI-2014 agenda creation should have generated an automated message to you for Indico login instructions. If you don't recall such message and believe you don't have an account, it is very simple to request a lightweight CERN ID online for all CERN Indico usage. For speakers already have Indico userID, there can still be a caveat of whether the right userID was connected to your talk as many people have a few different userIDs. All speakers should therefore try to login to Indico from the SSI-2014 agenda to check if your access is setup correctly.

Uploading Lecture Slides
If your login userID is the correct one, you should see the upload access symbol

on the right side next to your talk in the time table. If you don't see the upload symbol after successful login, please E-mail us right away to try to resolve this. Click on the upload symbol will reveal a pull down menu. Selecting "Add material" will bring up the upload panel:

Click on "Choose File" button will bring up file browser panel on your computer to allow you navigate to where your slides are for uploading. We recommend to only use either powerpoint or PDF formats to guarantee proper display on the console computer. Indico will automatically convert PowerPoint to make PDF also available so that you don't have to convert PowerPoint manually yourself. If the upload is successful, reload the Indico agenda page will show the symbols linked to to the uploaded slides. If there are special display materials other than regular PowerPoint or PDF, you can upload the same way (but select Material Type to be something other than "Slides") but please alert the organizers to ensure proper display.

If the Indico access ended up to be problematic to you, bring a memory stick to the console to upload the talk during a break before your talk.
