Events on the CETIS website can now be accessed as iCalendar files. This enables you to subscribe to the events and have
them appear in common calendar applications such as Sunbird/Mozilla and Apple iCal. There are
two calendar files provided on the site: one of CETIS events (e.g. SIG meetings and CETIS conferences), and one of other
events we've highlighted.
To access the CETIS events calendar, you need to subscribe to http://www.cetis.ac.uk/events.ics (iCal users
can click the link and subscrbe automatically).
To access the 'other' events calendar, you need to subscribe to http://www.cetis.ac.uk/otherevents.ics
Lots of information on iCalendar is available on the net. There is a (brief, and incomplete) list of compatible products here.
If you are interested in the use of iCalendar for exchanging
course timetable information, then take a look at the SWEET.net project.
