How to Register
First, you have to login to the IHEP Indico. Click on here: Online Registration. There are two possible ways to login to the IHEP Indico: either using the IHEP SSO Account or the Indico Local Account. The Indico Local Account is obsolete. It is unlikely that you have this account. If you have no IHEP SSO Account, click on “Register an IHEP SSO account? Click here” and answer all questions. Click on “Contact Person” for “Security Control” and type in Linac18@ihep.ac.cn as ”Contact persons email”. Once you create the IHEP SSO Account, click on IHEP SSO Acct. in the “Login with a valid IHEP SSO Acct.”. “Login with Indico Local Account” is for people who has a Local Indico Account, and you cannot login by filling Username and Password of the IHEP SSO Account which you just created (it is a deception for most of us).
If you forget the password, click on “Login with a valid IHEP SSO Acct.” Click on "Forgot your password?" and type in your e-mail address. They send you an e-mail in which they give you a link to reset the password. Important note: they may ask you a "strong" password (without passing their test of strongness, they may not accept your new password). Here "strong" means that you have to use symbols (such as #,@, etc) in your new password, though they do not say so explicitly.
