At 4:15 on Thursday, September 30, in Noyce 3821, Professor Henry Walker will give a talk about software that he and his students have developed for the management of proposals for presenting research papers at conferences. In 1999, Mr. Walker was asked to develop the first iteration of a Web-based paper submissions and reviewing system. The current system represents the twelfth version of this software, and each version has implemented refinements, new capabilities, and adjustments. Reflections on the evolution of this system yield numerous lessons for software and Web-based systems. This talk discusses 10 (hexadecimal) observations that can help in the design of future software applications.
Refreshments will be served at 4:15 p.m. in the Computer Science
Commons (Noyce 3817). The talk,
Software for the submission and review of conference proposals: 10 (hexadecimal) lessons, will follow at
4:30 p.m. in Noyce 3821. Everyone is welcome to attend!
