(the backup server is not the appropriate location for the proceedings. They should be relocated to somewhere that is itself backed up.)
IRIDIA has a proceedings repository that contains digital copies of proceedings.
To get access you need an account in the backup server.
Then login and go to
cd /opt/proceedings ls

scp -r /media/cdrom user@fallopius:/opt/proceedings/2010-gecco ssh user@fallopius /opt/proceedings/update_permissions
