New Page Explains How to Make a Conference Website

clock October 17, 2012 17:43
We've just posted a new Web page that explains everything you need to know to design and post a conference website. The new page explains how to design both the site and its registration page. And while we've had approved navigation labels for conference sites available for years, the new page explains what type of content belongs under those labels.

The new page is likely to evolve as DOE releases new requirements for registration sites. But we'd also like to hear from the Programs that have run conference sites in the past. What information would be useful for you? What would you like us to add to this page?

Feel free to leave your feedback and suggestions here on the blog, or mail them directly to the Communication Standards webmaster. We'd love to hear your feedback! [More]
