Mobile Application Supporting Conference Attendees and Organizers
The proliferation of technological advances have made possible the development of mobile applications that can effectively support organizers and attendees; mobile applications are easily accessible through a smartphone and the user can effortlessly upload or retrieve any pertinent information. This paper presents CoMMA, a web-based mobile application for managing conferences. It discusses the application’s functionality by presenting common issues that may rise during a given event and the support CoMMA can provide toward tackling them. In addition, the paper discusses the technologies and the developmental techniques that we used. Next, it presents the development phase, the front- and back-end functionality and details on its first real-time implementation. It concludes by discussing possible improvements in order to enrich the application’s set of features, its functionality and architecture as well as some of its limitations.
