Organize talks in series

A series is a collection of talks on a specific topic. The series will help your listeners not to get confused with a large number of talks on your profile. Instead, they can quickly find topics that interest them through your series. In addition, other talks from the same series will be recommended to a user that listens to one of your talks.
