2. User's guide

This page describes the general idea of the LivingTalks tool. You may find some more detailed information about how to use the tool in the online help. This online help can also be accessed from within the tool by clicking on the “?”-icon. Even more details are found in the footer section of the individual pages used to access a particular feature.

2.1 Features

The LivingTalks tool allows to capture all data necessary to create the program of a (large) conference, and to actually do the creation of the published program. It provides the following functionality. All these functions are accessed via a standard web browser (JavaScript required):

2.2 Usage

The tool is accessed using a web browser. The following image displays the tool's entry page as used by the Net.ObjectDays 2000 conference:

If the tool was installed on your local machine as described in the installation guide, you may open the tool's entry page by clicking on the following line:


The above graphics, as well as the help file describe the general workflow which work is done in: from authors, talks, and categories -- over block and tracks – to the schedule and the published content.

We will not go much further in this guide: it all is a matter of click and read. Just play around... When prompted for a user name and password, enter:

user: j2ee
password: j2ee

If this fails, you will have to ask the tool's administrator for a valid user name and password.

Some last hint: When installed properly, you will find under the “import”-button of the tool's entry page an import entry “Example”. Import it and you do not have to enter data from scratch – for instance, you may try the publish feature directly...
