About sponsoring accounts for conference participants
Conference accounts are for participants of IU-sponsored conferences, workshops, or special programs who need access to secure IU-owned computing resources, such as the wired IU network, the Student Technology Centers (STCs), or network printing services. Conference accounts are for temporary use (typically days or weeks, less than a semester) and then they expire; extensions are not available. Conference accounts are not personal accounts; see IU account types and abilities.
Conference accounts must be sponsored by a full-time faculty or staff member, and must be approved by UITS Accounts Administration. For more, see About conference use of the STCs.
To sponsor Conference accounts:
- Click .
- Enter the requested information about the conference and the resources your conference guests will need. Click .
Once the University Information Policy Office has processed your request, you will receive notification of the account usernames and passphrases available to your conference attendees. If you experience any problems requesting accounts, contact the Accounts Administration team.
Conference coordinators must keep records of all Conference account users. In the case of a security or policy violation, the coordinator must be able to supply identity and contact information for the user of the offending account at the time of the incident, and must assist in problem resolution.
