HotCRP is world-class software for managing the conference review process, including submission, reviewing and commenting, rebuttals, and the PC meeting. Its main strengths are review flexibility and ease of use: smart paper search and a tagging facility help conference chairs design their own review processes. These features are particularly important for larger conferences with in-depth reviewing. HotCRP is widely used in computer science conferences and for internal review processes at several large companies.
HotCRP is open source and can be deployed on your own server; HotCRP.com is a commercial service that hosts HotCRP deployments. Using HotCRP.com offers several advantages, including integrated login, automated backup, quick deployment of new HotCRP features, and, optionally, support.
