This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions. What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:
1. Read the documentation
. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.
2. take a look at the tutorials
. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.
3. Post a question
. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support
subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development
I am looking into using OCS for a conference that will potentially have about 1500 presentations. I am VERY worried that the schedule, for example, will be too much for the server and essentially time out every time someone tries to view the page. Also, using the scheduler for a conference of this size might also be a problem. Of course, there are other areas of the website that might present performance issues, but I mention the scheduler, in particular, as it can be very slow.
I would love to hear about the experiences of anyone that has used OCS for very large conferences.

While I can't think of any off the top of my head, you may want to take a look through our OCS Conferences List
to see if you can find any large conferences. I'm sure the technical support contacts wouldn't mind sharing their experiences with you. Of course, it's always good to hear publicly on this forum as well how larger-scale use of our software scales, and I hope to see some response here as well.
