For an overview of sub-event scheduling see the Workshop, Expo, Tutorial, Demo and other Sub-Schedule Organizers. Only workshop or other organizers have access to the features on the Organizer Admin site.
The Organizer Admin pages can be found at
From the Organizer Admin site you can Add a New User Account, edit your Workshop Details, view other Workshop's Details, and manage your Workshop Events.
Generally the Admin pages look like this.
The Menu Bar shows the currently selected workshop, a link to the Organizer Start Page, and a link back to the conference home page.
The Sidebar is where you select the action you want to perform. The Sidebar can be hidden or displayed using the Sidebar control.
The Items List or Item Change Area will display a list of items (e.g. Workshop Details or Workshop Events) or a specific item's details.
All speakers, authors, organizers and attendees at a conference must have a user account on the conference website. You specify a speaker, author or organizer in the other pages on the Organizer Admin site by using the email address associated with their user account. If you need to add a speaker, author or organizer who does not have an account use the +Add button for Add User Account. On the next page fill in the new users email, first name and last name. By default an email is sent to this user asking them to log into the website to set a password and provide more details for their profile. If an email already has an account you will not be able to create that account.
For you workshop you may update the Workshop Details by clicking on the Workshop Details in the sidebar. You can view other workshop details but you cannot update details for a workshop which you are not an organizer of. Workshop organizers are listed at the bottom of the Workshop Details page and you may manage your workshop organizers here.
You can view the workshop details for all workshops in the conference including your workshop. Clicking on Workshop Details (All Workshops) shows a list of all the workshops. Clicking the id for one of the workshops in the list will show the details for that workshop.
You can manage the events for your workshop by clicking Workshop Events in the sidebar. When you click on this it will show the Workshop Events Change List View. The change list view shows all your workshop events ordered by starttime, which is the order they appear to attendees on the website. To update an existing event click on the events id number in the Workshop Events Change List View. See the Workshop Event Add, View, or Update Page section below for details on managing an individual event.

Click on the Workshop Events in the sidebar to show the Workshop Events Change List View and then click on the id of the event you wish to view or update to show the Workshop Events Change View. If you modify a field be sure to click one of the Save buttons to save the updated event.
The workshop event speakers are listed at the botton of the Workshop Event Add or Change View. You can add new speakers by entering their email into the empty Speaker box. If when you enter an email the system responds with No Results Found, then this email does not have an account for the conference and you will need to add their account (see Add New User Account above).
Be sure to click one of the Save buttons after adding or modifying the details for an event speaker.
