However, if you have an issue with a browser on this list, please feel free to open a bug report.

Getting Indico

Information on how to get the latest release can be found at the project's web site. There are installation guides for different systems available in the project's documentation.


Indico is the result of the collective work of more than 100 different developers, translators and usability specialists of many nationalities. You can be the next one - read our Contribution Guide if you'd like to help out.

You don't need to know how to write code in order to help!


The full roadmap is available on the project site.


The main meeting points for the community are:

We follow CERN's Values and the principles established by CERN's Code of Conduct.


This software project was initially funded by the European Union's FP5 programme🇪🇺, in what was called the Integrated Digital Conferencing Project, or just InDiCo. CERN was responsible for the development of the "Make-a-Confererence" workpackage (inspired by an already existing system called CDS Agenda, also developed at the Organization) which would then become what we nowadays know as Indico.

We have since stopped using the InDiCo acronym, as it no longer reflects accurately the nature of the project. The word Indico now has no particular meaning other than the product's name.
