Conf Researchr: A Domain-Specific Content Management System for Managing Large Conference Websites

OASIcs-EVCS-2023-12.pdf (1 MB)


Conferences are great opportunities for sharing research, debating solutions, and networking. For the organizing committee there is a considerable deal of complexity and effort required to provide attendees and organizers with ways to find and manage programs, sessions, papers, tracks, talks, and authors. Eelco Visser found an opportunity to provide an integrated solution to these problems by designing the Conf Researchr conference management system in 2014 using our own domain-specific web programming language WebDSL. In this paper, we highlight the impact Eelco had on conference management, and how Conf Researchr evolved to become the platform of choice for hosting over 900 conference and workshop editions in SIGPLAN and SIGSOFT, among other areas of computer science research.
