investigate Act and whether to switch to it ASAP This is a Free-as-in-freedom web-based software for managing conferences. There have been over 100 Act-based conferences so far, each with dozens to hundreds of attendees. Act helps planning the talks schedule (with iCal support), disseminating announcements to attendees (with Atom support), processing payments (with tax office qualified invoice/participation receipt printing) and much more. You have the choice between having the developer team host an instance for lower administrative overhead or install the software to host it yourself. as we use Indico its not needed anymore
