I have a list of contributions for a conference, with each one consisting of a serial number, a title, a list of authors, and an abstract. What I'd like to do is:
- typeset the list of contributions sequentially, so a reader can skim the abstracts
- have an author index, so that the reader looking for the contribution of a particular author can jump directly to that page.
I have enough contributions, and expect enough changes, that automating this is worth my while.
Is there a standard package that I can adapt to do this ? I don't mind writing some external scripts to preprocess data if need be.
Note: there's no scheduling information I need to worry about.
