Senior Project - concord


Technical Conference Administration System

Senior Project: 2004-2005
Brian Bobich, Keith Busch, Marc Jenchura, Brett Lefebvre and Jeffrey Rizzi
Boulder, CO

IBM often holds conferences which hundreds of employees attend. These conferences have been organized by hand through the use of various word processing documents, spreadsheets, email and a considerable amount of manual processing of conference information and materials. This was a tedious, time-consuming and error-prone process.

Project concord automated this process by providing a web-based tool that allows a non-technical conference administrator to create conference websites, manage online user registration, communicate with attendees via email and posted messages, and to generate reports on the current status of registration. A rather unique feature is the ability to create customized templates for name badges and "trading cards" -- personalized cards similar to sports trading cards that attendees can share with one another. These custom name badges and trading cards can then be automatically generated and made available to all attendees at the conference. The project was implemented using Java Server Pages (JSP) and IBM's DB2 database platform.
