Selecting a Good Conference Location Based on Participants' Interests
Miah, Muhammed
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n4 p63-72 Sep 2011
Selecting a good conference location within budget constraints to attract paper authors and participants is a very difficult job for the conference organizers. A conference location is also very important along with other issues such as ranking of the conference. Selecting a bad conference location may reduce the number of paper submissions and create bad impressions on the conference to the paper authors and conference participants. The conference location should be selected in such a way that it can attract authors to submit papers as well as others to participate/attend. In this paper we discuss how to select a good conference location within budget constraints that can attract many authors/participants considering participants' interests. We propose several methods to select the best location among the available possible locations within budget constraints based on the authors and participants interests on various features or attributes of the locations. Our problem also has interesting applications in information systems education as well. We perform evaluation of our proposed algorithms both on real and synthetic data.
