Forum rules
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 subforum.

Hi Huu,

Yes, you can do that -- you will find instructions in OCS in an Hour, on the OCS documentation page: http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs_documentation.

I have read through "OCS in an Hour" but it's still not clear to me how this works.

Ideally, I would like to use the OCS so that individuals or groups can manage their own conferences independently from others.
I imagine this might be done by creating multiple Conference Managers.
Eg CM1 looks after one range of conferences, CM2 looks after another and so on. and each is completely separate.

Any comments/suggestions appreciated.

That's the whole idea. OCS is a conference manager system.
Create the conferences you want under the application, create a conference admin for each one, and then each conference admin creates individual conferences from there.

What is your infrastructure beyond that? If you are trying to do something complicated, or really elaborate, then consider making a default installation and make as many copies as you need admins and let them run under separate domains. But OCS is designed to work as a server, not a conference web only.
