Abstract

Open source event management systems such as OpenConf, Easychair and CiviCRM do not foresee the activities, resource allocation and costs management features necessary to each programmed event item. In this paper we present AEMS – an advanced event management system with project management like features. We present the requirements for such features, based on a case study carried out with a real-world customer. Then, we describe the development of AEMS and discuss its data model, architecture and the developed prototype. With AEMS, our customer will be able to manage all activities, resources and costs associated with an event. The results from applying our development to our real-world customer will allow us to derive AEMS to a generic software product.
