Conference and Event Management
UNM's Digital Repository supports custom-designed full-featured websites with a complete set of user submission and peer review tools. Via the site, conference organizers can:
- accept a wide variety of materials (abstracts, papers, posters, presentations, meeting minutes);
- review, accept or reject submissions;
- and create an online display of the conference information -- location, date, start and end time, and abstract -- in a chronological view similar to a conference program or schedule.
Full papers can be added after the conference with author permission. If video is created of conference presentations, it can be hosted on UNM's servers and set up to stream within the conference page, creating a permanent online record of the proceedings.

A great example is the Shared Knowledge Conference, a celebration of UNM graduate students and their outstanding research and scholarship. The conference provides a venue for students to cross the borders that too often divide them from the larger world. Over 100 posters and presentations were uploaded to the conference's website after the Fall 2017 event, and in 2018 the SKC organizers will use all features of the system to manage their conference from submission to presentation to online archive.
