Web-CS: Infrastructure for Web-Based Competitions.
Aerts, A. T. M.; Bierhoff, P. F. M.; De Bra, P. M. E.
This paper presents a World Wide Web-based infrastructure for cooperation between many different parties. The infrastructure is designed for Web-based competitions involving an editorial board, designers of assignments or events, evaluators, different organizational layers, and contestants. Web-CS is entirely Web-based: all the communication between the cooperating parties is achieved through communicating Web-browsers and Web-servers (augmented with Java-applets on the client side and a database system on the server side). The first section of the paper introduces the organizational structure of Web-based competitions in general. The second section describes the Hungarian KoMaL (Kozepiskolai Matematikai es Fizikai Lapok, i.e., a mathematical and physical journal for secondary schools) competition, the requirements for Web-CS, and comparable systems. The third section presents the Web-CS architecture, including system components, basic module structure, and document formats and file-uploading. (Author/MES)
