What is its Purpose
Open Conference Systems (OCS) is an open-source web-publishing software for the management of scientific conferences, created thanks to funding form the Canadian Government by a consortium named Public Knowledge Project.
Archimede Informatica provides hosting services, installation, training for editors and customization of functionalities. Archimede Informatica is also able to develop the integration between OCS and other computer systems, such as management systems, Microsoft Office and Open Office.
OCS is a complete system for the management of all aspects of a scientific conference, from the publication of a dedicated website with the possibility of choosing and customizing the graphic aspects, over the management workflow of articles, up to the management of enrolments with online payment.
OCS is suitable for universities and research institutes that use internal staff for the organization and management of scientific conferences, but it is also the ideal solution for companies that organise the logistics and the location of conferences, to manage communication and enrolments and add it to their package of offers.
