An Innovative Conference Management Mobile Application (CoMMA)
Managing a conference can be a frustrating process for both organizers and attendees. However, technological advances have made possible the development of mobile applications that can effectively support both parties; mobile applications are easily accessible through a smartphone and the user can effortlessly upload or retrieve any pertinent information. In this paper we present CoMMA, an innovative mobile application for conference management, which aims to support organisers and attendees. The paper discusses the functionality of the application by presenting common issues that may rise during a given event and the support CoMMA can provide toward tackling them. Next, it presents the front and back-end functionality, along with details on its first realtime implementation. The authors conclude by discussing possible contributions with regards to raising attendees’ satisfaction and presenting future steps toward enriching the application’s set of features and further improving its functionality.
