Web Enabled Conference Management System

Abstract In recent years, with the improvement of internet technologies and hardware supports, we can find that internet have become an important part in our daily life. Thus with the enormous use of the networks, many real world activities are now handled as World Wide Web applications. Our focus in this paper is a complete conference management system, we observe that in the last few years, several web based conference management systems have been developed and are being used by many international conferences all over the world. However, some of these systems are not available for free to the academic community and some of them are restricted in terms of options and flexibility that they provide to the users. Some of the available systems do not support multiple tracks in the conference; some do not provide flexibility to the organizers to be innovative. We present an architecture, as well as a complete system of integrated tools to support planning, organization, management, and execution efforts during the organization and running of a new conference. This paper describes the Web Enabled Conference Management (WECM) System that handles all activities of real-world conferences by relinquishing much of manual control and activities to automatic mechanism. The Conference Management System is the front end to handle the processes of conference organization. It also provides many tools to different members of the conference organizing committee including conference administrator, conference chair, track chairs, program committee and authors, with varying level of access and control.

Introduction In recent years, with the improvement of internet technologies and hardware supports, we can find that internet have become an important part in our daily life. Thus with the enormous use of the networks, many real world activities are now handled as World Wide Web applications. Keeping in line with this latest trend we present a Web Enabled Conference Management (WECM) System. We understand that organizing a scientific conference requires careful planning and excellent organization and management skills. The process of organizing a conference consists of a number of activities, such as; putting together number of committees, formalizing and advertizing call for papers (CFP), collecting the papers, conducting a peer review of the papers and managing the registration process to name a few of the related activities. There are a number of conference management systems available in the market such as MyReview12, Start11, CyberChair4. However, these systems do not support one or more of the above described functionalities of the conference management. In addition, some of these open source system such as MyReview lacks the support for registration process and support during the conference organization. In addition, some of the available systems are not available for free to the academic community (OpenConf charges US$250 per event + Installation, license, etc.7) and some of them (CMS-Plus2, ConfMaster3, ConfTool15) are restricted in terms of options and flexibility that they provide to the users. Some of the available systems (EasyChair5 suitable for LNCS style conference only) do not support multiple
