Jin, Xin (2003) CONFSYS : the Cindi Conference Support System. Other thesis, Concordia University.
This report describes a web-based conference management system (ConfSys) to be used by three groups of users: authors, reviewers and program chair(s). Authors can submit their papers on-line; reviewers (program committee members) can assign their preference for papers to review in an on-line auction and later download and review papers assigned to them on-line; finally the program chair(s) can use the system to automatically perform an initial assignment of papers. This assignment is based on the reviewers' preference from the auction process as well as certain guidelines used in avoiding conflicts of interests. The system also facilitates the program committee in debating the review and converging to a decision about the papers. The authors can directly get the results of the review and the blind comments from the reviewers, online. This report presents the design and implementation of the ConfSys. It focuses on the important new features and automatic allocation algorithm based on the preference of reviewers. The system is implemented using Java Servlet communicating with a MySQL database server on Linux platform. The project uses an Apache web server integrated with the Tomcat servlet engine.
