About CMT

The Conference Management Service (CMT) is a conference management service sponsored by Microsoft Research.  CMT is capable of handling the complex workflow of an academic conference including:

  • Submission of abstracts and papers
  • Adding reviewers to the system
  • Reviewer preferences, bidding and paper assignment
  • Discussion phase for resolving conflicting reviews
  • Virtual Program Committee meeting
  • Notification of acceptance/rejection
  • Camera-ready paper submissions

CMT provides rich support to the Program Committee chairs for managing the conference workflow including customization of conference properties e.g., multiple tracks, deadlines, criteria and display of the author submission and reviewer forms, double-blind reviewing, allowing authors to mark conflict of interest with reviewers, use of external reviewers and meta reviewers. CMT also provides a number of filtering, sorting and aggregation alternatives as well as emailing capability to authors and reviewers that makes it easy to handle conferences with a large number of reviewers and submissions. CMT enables the Program Committee chairs to easily export out a variety of reports in popular formats such as XML and Excel.

CMT is currently a free service and its functionalities are fully accessible through its web based interfaces. CMT has been used extensively including large conferences such as ACM SIGMOD, ACM SIGKDD, VLDB, ACM SIGCHI, UAI, IEEE ICDE, STOC, SODA.

CMT is built using Microsoft technologies including Windows Server, Internet Information Server (IIS) and SQL Server. The interfaces, however, support a wide range of browsers on multiple platforms.
