Update on the development of this site - 20/8/2009

We are close to releasing the conference programme in CrowdVine. I gather from users that some people have already chanced upon it. If this happens to you please refrain from creating your personal schedule for the moment as there may be some late changes that we need to make to the programme that are not yet reflected in the version of the programme presently accessible. Apologies that this message sounds a little obscure!

Thank you, Seb

The conference calendar is now live in CrowdVine, with a tab for it now visible.

Our next step will be to publicise the CrowdVine site to all those who have booked for the conference.

I was wondering if there was a way that presenters' names in the calendar could link thru' to their profiles?

I'm guessing not, so perhaps presenters could be encouraged to add their own sessions to 'My schedule' so that they then appear in the 'Who's Interested?' list.

We will be including something like this in the guidance to presenters:

*Important information about CrowdVine*

CrowdVine is the networking site for ALT-C 2009. Its URL is

Many of you have already got accounts on CrowdVine, and over the next few days all conference delegates will be given active encouragement to create accounts.

There are two helpful things you can do to help delegates get the most out of your session.

Firstly, please use the "Calendar" tab to find your session on CrowdVine and sign up to attend it. Please encourage fellow presenters to do likewise.

Secondly, if and when you have a PowerPoint or other presentation to share with conference participants, please upload it to CrowdVine as a comment to the session in which you are presenting. If you do this, please include in the covering note to the upload a clear reference to the number of your presentation, which appears in bold font immediately before the title of your presentation. For obvious reasons it would be best to avoid uploading large files - say over 10 MB in size. As an alternative you may wish to point instead to a URL that contains your presentation elsewhere.
