Re: [school-discuss] Open Source Management System for Conventions needed?

There is a version of this that already exists for Drupal -- see http://drupal.org/project/cod and http://groups.drupal.org/conference-organizing-distribution

It definitely needs some work, but this would be one way to accomplish this and leverage existing development within a thriving OS community.

And with that said, there are a few other ways of accomplishing similar goals within Drupal -- there are two ecommerce packages within Drupal, and a few different ways of setting up event registration. The ecommerce solutions have several options for processing online payments.

Hi All,

I was wondering if there was any perceived need for an open source
system to manage a convention of some sort including online
registration for workshops and concurrent sessions, mailback
confirmations, various reports, admin interface, that sort of thing.

I have an existing system that I've used for several years, but was
wondering if it might be useful to others. I was considering helping
adapt this to the Ottawa Linux Symposium (OLS) but was wondering about

Your views?
