Abstract : This thesis is a follow-on effort to work conducted by Michael Chalfant and Kevin Coats Ref. 1. The focus is the design and implementation of a web-based information system for the Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems and Computers. This technical conference specializes in signal and image processing, communications, sensor systems, and computer hardware and software. Organized in collaboration with the Naval Postgraduate School, San Jose State University, and the IEEE Signal Processing Society, the Conference is conducted annually at the Asilomar Conference Facility in Pacific Grove, California. Initial project efforts concentrated on article submissions and system administration (i.e., database management). The article review process and overall implementation of the improved system is the focus of this thesis. The objectives of this thesis are to: (1) Analyze the article review process of the Asilomar Conference, (2) Implement a World Wide Web (WWW) based article review process, (3) Implement the improved Asilomar Conference information system. Internet automation is accomplished via interactive WWW pages, created using Borland's Delphi as a programming tool, O'Rielly's WebSite as the web server, and Common Gateway Interface scripts as the mechanism for interactivity. This interactivity provides seamless global access to the Conference database and processes.
