I mentioned a few days ago that we’re going to be doing a conference on legal and policy issues relating to robotics, scheduled for April 21 & 22. As the ringleader of this plan, I need to set up systems for accepting receipt of paper proposals, sharing them out to the Program Committee, and ultimately notifying speakers of the fate of their proposals.
One can do it by hand — but software would be better. Can any of the readers here suggest something? You might think a big law school like ours would have something in hand, but legal conferences are usually by invitation so there is much less call for this sort of program (or web software) than you would find in other departments.
(I try not to bleg much here, but this time I need the advice.)
