Scaling of Roles Tasks and Resources vs Size of your Conference
ECRIS has about 60 participants, IBIC has about 250, and IPAC has about 1500. Not all teams are built equal, but are built to the size of the task ahead of them! JACoW has many member conferences of many different subject areas and thus different sizes. This talk aim to show examples of different size conferences and the considerations which are made in the condensing of roles, the size of the teams involved, typical budget implications, and aspects of SPMS and other tools used to organise and run the conference.

Running & Staffing Your Proceedings Office & Other Important Roles
Running a proceeding's office can be full of traps and generate allot of extra work for your team and leave even more work to be finished after the conference if not run efficiently. This talk will draw on many experiences in staffing, constructing, and running a proceedings office, and the roles that surrounding office have in contributing to the smooth operation, and achieving the final bundle of material for publication.
