Open Conference Systems (OCS) is a free Web publishing tool that will
create a complete Web presence for your scholarly conference. OCS will
allow you to:
- create a conference Web site
- compose and send a call for papers
- electronically accept paper and abstract submissions
- allow paper submitters to edit their work

The login is "admin" and the password is "testdrive". This installation
