Δημιουργία και εύρεση εκδηλώσεων με βάση κριτηριών στον παγκόσμιο ιστό
The purpose of this paper is to develop a web platform for finding events. Users can either find another user’s event, or create themselves a new one and insert it into the app. They can also search for events by name, category, date, region and cost. Events can either be free or not. In that case users pay at the hosting place. When users attend events they earn a bonus. This is a discount in future events. An event, after it is created by a user, it can be edited or cancelled. This action is recorded and presented to the attending users via the newsfeed page so they are always informed of the state of their attending events. Users can ask a question or comment in the event’s page. They can also review some statistics about either their events or their attending events via “My account” page and also view/edit their personal info via “Profile” page. Finally, the web platform is provided with a recommendation system for events based on user’s and event’s location, the occupation and interests of the user, the region and finally, the total number of subscriptions.
