To add an announcement, use the link at the top of the page. An email address is required so that announcements you post can be edited or deleted. To prevent spam, some simple arithmetic is also required. When you add an announcement, you will receive a message like the following:
Thanks for adding your announcement to AlgTop-Conf; it is now available in the main list:
If you need to edit your announcement, use the unique edit link:
If you need to delete your announcement, use the unique delete link:
Note that you will receive new edit/delete links after each update to your announcement. If you have any difficulties, questions, or comments, don't hesitate to contact Niles:

If you need to update your announcement, use the links provided to access the edit or delete pages. Each announcement is assigned a random string which is required to edit or delete; this appears at the end of the links above and is re-generated each time the announcement is updated.
Sending an announcement email
It's useful to send your announcements to distribution lists as well as posting them here. You can use the "Copy to email lists..." section for this purpose. When you show or hide this section, data from your announcement will be used to prefill the form, as indicated below:
If you have any further questions, or suggestions, please let Niles know. Recommendations for other distribution lists to add below the To field are particularly welcome!
An RSS feed is an electronic format for publishing information that is frequently updated. Using a feed reader, one can quickly scan the list of topics. New topics which have not yet been viewed are highlighted for convenience.
The RSS feed for this site gives a list of conference titles, sorted by date, and direct links to their homepages. You can read more about RSS feeds at the Wikipedia page. One example of a feed reader is Google Reader. There are many others.
Links are provided to automatically import data from each conference announcement into calendaring software. We have a direct link for Google Calendar, and an iCalendar (.ics) formatted file for importing into other software.
The people listed here have volunteered to help curate the AlgTop-Conf list. They help keep the list up-to-date by adding new announcements, if the organizers haven't done so themselves. They receive a copy of the edit/delete keys for each announcement, and can help if you have any trouble posting or updating your announcements.

If there are problems with a particular announcement, you can report them using the link provided with each announcement. This will send an e-mail, together with a brief comment, to the AlgTop-Conf curators. They will then edit or delete the announcement as necessary.
The data for each announcement is stored in a database, so search functionality can be easily added. This will be done in the happy case that the list becomes too large to skim quickly.
