DIGITALPAPERS is a web based Conference Management System (CMS) that supports the management of any type of scientific events. It was initially introduced in 2002 and since has gained a notorious presence in the Portuguese academic community, being in continuous development since then. It has passed all of the most defying tests and is now considered perfectly adequate to a small, medium or large size event (2000 users and over).

This CMS is provided as Software as a Service (SaaS), which means it is deployed over the internet with no need for any installation. The client (i.e. the organizers of the event) is provided with a license in the terms agreed, and the application is made available as a service. The main advantages of this are:

    • The system is accessible to everyone with an Internet connection;
    • There’s no need for local server installation;
    • It has rapid scalability;
    • System maintenance (backup, updates, security, etc) are included in the service;
    • It has strong reliability.
