Due to insufficient application support for conference organization, we have developed an integrated World-Wide Web (WWW) and database system (DBS) support for conference organization. This paper describes design, implementation, and evaluation of the organization system ConfMan. We discuss two important contributions: (1) the system-oriented aspects, i.e., design, implementation, and performance evaluation of an advanced distributed application that combines DBS and internet technology; (2) human-factor-related aspects, i.e., general usability of the system, e.g., what is the new relationship between participants of a program committee meeting. The discussions in this paper reflect our experiences of organizing DAIS'97 and IDMS'98 which should help other conference organizers to reduce their workload.
