"So you want to organise a conference. Great; do it. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also very rewarding, and it will put your city on the map for your topic.
I assume you have visited a few conferences, maybe spoken at some, but have organised none. Thus you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you want to achieve, but haven’t yet found out about all the little details that make a good conference a great one. That’s what this handbook is going to teach you."
