Most cooperative environments that have been developed for the Web are designed for groups of people with "equal rights" working together on a task, possibly supervised by a single level of administrative authority. We present a Web-based infrastructure for cooperation between many different parties. The infrastructure is designed for Web-based competitions, involving an editorial board, designers of assignments or events, evaluators, different organizational layers, and of course contestants. Web-CS is entirely Web-based: all the communication between the cooperating parties is achieved through communicating Web-browsers and Web-servers (augmented with Java-applets on the client side and a database system on the server side). This paper presents the global architecture of Web-CS and its implementation, which is currently being tried out in Hungary and in The Netherlands.
