Schedule and Location

ICC meetings are normally scheduled monthly on the second Friday of each month, from 10:00 AM to noon. Meetings are held in the new UF/IFAS Communications Conference Room in Building 69. Dates and location may vary with prior coordination.

Remote Participation

Via Blue Jeans

Please note that we are limited to 25 simultaneous Blue Jeans (BJ) connections; consequently the preferred method for room systems is to connect to the conference bridge directly. BJ connection details will be sent out the day prior to each meeting but will vary only in <meetingID>. The general procedure for each client is as follows:

  • To join the Meeting: https://bluejeans.com/<meetingID>/
  • To join with Skype: no longer supported
  • To join with Lync: https://bluejeans.com/<meetingID>/lync
  • To join via Browser: https://bluejeans.com/<meetingID>/browser
  • To join via Room System: Video Conferencing System: <meetingID>@bjn.vc
Via Polycom

Polycom access, where available, is preferred for remote participation. See the Video Conference Event Listing for the 7-digit extension (aka "Conference ID"), which will always start with 783 for UF conferences. Polycom users registered with the UF gatekeeper ( can dial directly to the extension number. Polycom users can also connect directly to the conference using the Codian bridge IP address followed by two pound signs "##" then the extension, for example:, where 7832000 is the extension number for the ICC conference that day.

Via Lync

You may also participate via Lync. Connect to a conference by entering confID@video.ufl.edu, into the Lync contacts search field at the top where "confID" is the conference ID as posted on the event list at http://video.ufl.edu ("7832000@video.ufl.edu" in this case). Note that the longer vcs.video.ufl.edu isn't used. The contact will show below the search field. You can either right-click and select "Start a video call", or double-click to open the connection, then start video (see http://wiki.it.ufl.edu/wiki/Office_Communicator and http://wiki.it.ufl.edu/wiki/Lync for full details).

Via browser

<< View live stream of current meeting (when in progress)>>

Live streaming for those without Polycom is available during meetings at the link shown above. When connecting you should enter your name in the "Sign-in name" box, the last four digits of extension number being used in the "Conference ID" box, select a streaming rate of either 384 or 192 and then click "Stream this conference". Clicking the "Click here to log in" link will also allow connection, but will log you in as "guest". NOTE: Entering all 7 digits of the extension number in the "Conference ID" field will not work! All streams are in windows media format. You must also install the Codian codec.

Via phone (audio-only participation)

You may connect to a bridged conference phone by dialing (352) 372-4999 as explained off the "Help" tab at http://testvideo.at.ufl.edu/ep_db/conferencing.php.

Other out-of-band input

Input may be provided during meetings via a number of methods. E-mail to the ICC-L would enjoy the best chance of being seen and noted in a timely fashion. Other than Office Communicator, UF Jabber is the preferred IM service (see IM Usage for Computer Support for details [ufad\if-admn credentials required for access]). Attempts are made to monitor Jabber during meetings as well.
