CARLA Conference Database

| 1 Comment

What do we do with the CARLA Conference Database? It's currently hosted on an old, unreliable computer running the client version of FileMaker 6. Options up for consideration include:

  • Marlene rebuilds it in PHP in our modern FileMaker environment
  • Soni rebuilds it in PHP in our modern FileMaker environment
  • We contract a third party provider
  • We move it to WorkFlowGen
  • We wait for the University's Sales Force solution

What about the timing? Do we tackle it now to get it ready for the upcoming conference? Or do we have Marlene eke out one more season with the current solution?

They'll probably want the call for papers to come out in late fall 2011 (conference is Oct (?) 2012. At the very latest, Jan 2012. So it would have to be able to accept submissions by then. Some of the review functions could happen after that still, but would need to be ready by the end of Feb. 2012.
