Abstract

Organizing and managing a conference is a cumbersome and time consuming task. Electronic conference management systems support reviewers, conference chairs and the International Programme Committee members (IPC) in managing the huge amount of submissions. These systems implement the complete workflow of scientific conferences. One of the most time consuming tasks within a conference is the assignment of IPC members to the submissions. Finding the best-suited person for reviewing a paper strongly depends on the expertise of the IPC member. There are already various approaches like "bidding" or "topic matching". However, these approaches allocate a considerable amount of resources on the IPC member side. This article introduces how the workflow of a conference looks like and what the challenges for an electronic conference management are. It will take a close look on the latest version of the Eurographics Submission and Review Management system (SRMv2). Finally, it will introduce an extension of SRMv2 called the Paper Rating and IPC Matching Tool (PRIMA), which reduces the workload for both - IPC members and chairs - to support and improve the assignment process.
