Abstract

This report discusses the development process, design choices, and certain aspects of the implementation of key components behind LectureBank, a network connecting researchers and academic event organizers. We examine the tools involved and how the purpose and audience of the site as well as best practices and advice influenced the project. Additionally, we survey the latest advances in the field of web design, including new semantic HTML5 elements and microformats, and explore how we integrated and took advantage of them.
