Conferences Site accepts LBL Directory (LDAP) logins

The conferences site has been integrated with the Berkeley Lab Identity (LDAP)  Any LBL employee should be able to login using this userid/password.  External Users who want to submit an abstract or otherwise work on content with a collaborator at the lab will have to request a local account.  We are targeting a one day turn around to active these local accounts.

Problems with indico

(1) dates are in European syntax  DD/MM/YR
in the US, it is usaully  MM/DD/YY, so it is confusing  to see 6/1/12 and remember the event is for january 6 and not June 6

(2) Not clear how people are supposed to submit abstracts - are they expected to ask for an account, have the admin "activate" it, and then have permission to do something with a proposal or a paper?

(3)  Not clear how the LDAP integration is working.  Seems like it wants to have you put in a userid/pw as a local user.

(4) where do announcements show up?

(5) can we brand this with the lbl logo somehow?  also the link on the header takes you to cern.
