Indico Web Access
Manage & Editing Roles
The event managers listed below need to have their own
- Conference/Meeting/Lecture Managers
(Modification Control) - Only the
managers listed in the modification control, the
creator of the meeting, and any administrators can
access the Management Area of the meeting. All users
listed in the Management Area will have full control
of the entire event. However, you can add a
Modification Key which means anyone with this key
can modify the meeting without logging in.
- Session Managers - The Session Manager
has full control of a session. However, your
Conference or Meeting Manager may request you not to
edit some parts of the session. You are given the
Session Manager rights by your Conference or Meeting
- Session Coordinators (Default Conveners) - The Session
Coordinator is responsible for scheduling
contributions and breaks within their own session.
However, contributions must be imported by the
Session Manager or Conference Manager before they can
add them to their session.
Note: When editing session properties (see
below: Test Session 1 & 2), Indico will define session
coordinators as "default
conveners" of that session. Default conveners will
not be listed on the session block since they are
considered session administrators within the Indico system.
People defined as
"conveners" in this context should really be
considered as "chairpeople," in that they are
expected to lead the meeting or session itself and
not given (by default) admin rights to alter the
session in Indico. Conveners of a session
block will be listed on that block (see below), but
will not have any rights to schedule contributions
or breaks within their own session block.
- Contribution Managers - The Contribution
Manager is responsible for managing the information
in a contribution. Your are given contribution
management access by either the Conference or Event
Manager, Session Manager, the existing Contribution
Manager and possibly the Session Coordinator. You
can access your contribution by selecting Timetable
from the menu in the event home page and finding
your contribution. If you are the manager of that
contribution you will see a pencil button. This will
take you to your contribution management area.
Site Access Control
Indico has a two available common access key methods. After logging in, click the "Protection" link in
the left navbar to view the site access controls.
- Modification Key - This
allows all users to make edit to the entire event
with a common access key. Anyone with this key
can modify the event without having an
- Access Control Key -
This allows all users to view the event with a
common access key. When the event is status
is set to public,
anyone can view the event including the details,
timetable, material, etc. When the event status is
set private, only those in the access list
(Access Control Field), meeting
managers, and administrators can view the event.
Note: Each access control can be set
by using individual Indico user accounts, a modification or access
key or use can use both. However, it is more secure to use
individual Indico user accounts even though it may be easier to use
a single access key.
