JKU Conference Booking System


JKU Information Management provides a JKU-internal conference booking system to assist conference organisers with the registration procedure for conferences, workshops, meetings, symposia and similar. 

The JKU conference booking system is designed to be independent and accessible. You can choose between a landing page providing basic registration- and payment functionality or a more complex website featuring its own menu and subpages.

Necessary steps to receive a conference booking system:

In most cases three different JKU departments are involved.

  • Financial Accounting: processing payments
  • Event Management / room coordination: handling the reservation of hotel rooms (if desired)
  • Information Management / User Services: creating an conference-specific e-mail address
  • Information Management / Web and Media: setting up the conference booking system

In order to facilitate prompt and speedy processing of your request, it is advisable to collect all necessary data before meeting the individual departments. 


Following information may be additionally prepared in advance:

  • Decide which additional products you wish to offer. For example: conference pass, additional events, workshops, excursions, lunch, ...
  • Design a banner (1800 x 350 pixels) and logo (400 x 400 pixels) for your website
