The IRIDIA seminars can be divided into two main types: internal seminars (IS) and external seminars (ES). Each kind of seminars need a slightly different management procedure. The following procedure summarizes everything that you need to do to manage a new seminar.

How to Manage Seminars

  1. Ask for confirmation of the seminar date and time to at least one person from MD, MB, or TS.
  2. Add an entry to the IRIDIA Seminar Database (only for ES):
    1. Create a folder on your PC called "seminars/"
    2. Copy the semPush script to "seminars/"
    3. Create an xml file containing the xml received by email "FirstnameLastname.xml".
    4. Execute "./semPush mail.xml" from a terminal
    5. Check on IRIDIA Seminars List that the entry has been successfully added
  3. Update the IRIDIA's Calendars and book the seminar room:
    1. Login into the system
    2. Add an entry into the seminar for the requested date
    3. Always use timed events and remember to add the duration of the event
    4. Add participants to the event:
      1. If the seminar is an ES: "IRIDIA Seminars"
      2. If the seminar is an IS add the entry to ("IRIDIA Seminars", " Robotics calendar", "Optimization calendar") depending on the particular case
      3. If there is the need to book the Seminar room add "Seminar room" in the participants (always for ES)
      4. Always add an entry to "Common calendar" (semAdmin participant)
  4. Send reminders for the seminars (only in case of ES)
    1. Login into the IRIDIA server
    2. Send new seminar comunication (where <key> is a date in the format YYYY-MM-DD): "./semMail -s -m <key>"
    3. Send reminder: "./semMail -s -r <key>"
