IEA Clean Coal Centre upgrades Conference management system.

Published on: 20/01/2017

Once again webree is proud to be working with IEA ccc, this time to produce the next in the series of Clean Coal Technology conferences, CCT2017.  The IEA Clean Coal Centre’s 8th international conference on clean coal technologies (CCT2017) will be held from 8-12 May 2017 in Cagliari – capital city of the Italian island of Sardinia.


Having supported the series of CCT conferences with our old “IBIS” platform, this time the Conference is being handled with the new XPOR service.  “IEA ccc run two platforms with us, which we are working towards combining into a single, integrated system.  Apart from the occasional sticking points and change management requirements, it’s all gone really well.  The Conference has done well with abstract submissions and is now selling tickets at a good rate.” (Vicky Jordan, Client Manager).

As a priority we have been addressing the Conference service, rather than the main site. But the outcome has been impressive.  The system already has the main CCT2017 conference in process, with the latest “Cofiring7” conference next in line and soon to start “AUSC3”.

With the main site currently at the design stage, the outcome will bring significant organisational and reporting benefits for IEAccc.  All IEA sites will run under one platform, with scope for IEA to manage member access, discounts etc. across all IEAccc activities, in one place.

In fact, costs have been kept to a minimum as IEAccc recently relocated offices, leaving a server available to host the new system.  Additionally, IEA kindly donated spare hardware to our new neighbours, The Beneficial Foundation, for their networking requirements.
