Xml Feeds

Talks.cam can provide feeds in various different formats, including iCalendar, RSS and Plain Text. You can also choose a custom view of your list and embed it on your own webpage. For the more technically minded, talks.cam can also provide information in a custom XML format, as specified below. See technical specification and info on disseminating talks for more information on how to obtain this feed and how to customise which talks appear in it.
