Add the Conference to my Calendar

How to subscribe to the calendar

You can subscribe to the Conference Calendar and integrate it into the calendar software on your computer or phone.
Any calendar software that will allow ical subscriptions (.ics file format) can be used. The calendar software will update your computer automatically with any changes to the schedule. Below you will find brief instructions for the most popular devices.

Microsoft Outlook
Go to File ->Account Manager (or Tools -> Account Settings) and select the Internet Calendars tab. Add the calendar by clicking “New” and enter the calendar link.

Google/Android Phone
In the calendar section of your GMail/Google Apps account there is a list on the left of calendars that are available to view.
At the bottom right of that list is the word "Add". If you click on “Add”  and select "Add by URL" you can cut and paste the link. Ignore the checkbox about making it publicly available.
If you are using an Android phone this calendar will then sync to your Android phone, provided that the account you wish to add the calendar to is the account that you sync to your Android phone!

Apple iCal etc.
Use Apple's iCal calendar or any ical-friendly  calendar app. Click on "Subscribe..." from the "Calendar" and paste the link. Make sure you allow for alarms (optional) and attachments, but not to-do items. Set the auto-refresh time as necessary ("daily" would be OK).

Apple iPhone
Use your phone’s Web browser to navigate to this page. Click the link above and the iPhone should ask if you want to add the calendar to your phone’s calendar. It will then be available as a separate calendar in your phone’s calendar App. Alternatively copy the link above, paste it into an e-mail, and send it to yourself. When you open the e-mail on your phone and click the link you will be prompted to confirm that you want to subscribe to the calendar.


The Blackberry will not directly subscribe to iCal (.ics) files so you can either import to your Outlook account if that syncs to your phone or set up a personal Google calendar which you can add the conference calendar to using the instructions above. You then need to install Google Sync on your Blackberry device and sync it to your Google calendar.
