  • Add your GitHub username to the proper university file. Note that you will not show up in the full team page if you are not in a university file!


  • Have an existing team member add your email address to the IRIS-HEP Slack team.
  • Subscribe to the relevant Google mailing lists, at the very least “IRIS-HEP Full Team” and “IRIS-HEP Announcements”.


There is a section for presentations in the file you created above. We would like to keep track of the presentations made by IRIS-HEP team members, with the following criteria:

  • Only presentations related to IRIS-HEP itself should be included.
  • Any presentation in a “public” meeting should be included. This includes presentations made in experiment meetings, even if they are protected such that the presentation and meeting links are not world visible.
  • Presentations in the IRIS-HEP topical meetings should be included.
  • Minor presentations in internal “working” meetings of IRIS-HEP do not need to be added.
  • Presentations, lectures, etc. as part of training events should be included.
  • Posters at workshops and conferences can also be included. You can add “(poster)” at the end of the title. Include a link to a pdf of the poster.

The meaning of the fields is the following:

  • title - the title of the talk: you made need to place it in double quotes, if certain characters like a colon (“:”) are included in the title
  • date - the date on which the presentation was made, in the numeric format “YYYY-MM-DD”
  • url - this should be a direct URL to the presentation file (e.g. pdf)
  • meeting - the name of the meeting
  • meetingurl - the URL for the meeting in which the presentation was made
  • location - optionally list the location of a meeting if it was a workshop or dedicated gathering. Meetings that are mostly in Vidyo can just omit this.
  • focus-area - optionally list the relevant focus area for this presentation, using its short name, i.e. one of [ia,ssl,ssc,doma,as,osglhc]
