Abysmal performance of Event panel in PLDI'15 Research Papers track
This is a recurring problem for me that makes the website quite unpleasant to maintain. (See several previous bug reports from me over the last 4 months).
Clicking on the Events item on the left-hand nav bar when editing the Research Papers track of PLDI 2015 either:
(1) Completely hangs my web browser (no response for multiple minutes, browser completely dead in the water, has to be killed)
(2) Hangs for 30-60 seconds and eventually responds by showing the Events. Each interaction then takes 30+ seconds to complete until I get off the Events page.
Outcome (1) is much more common than outcome (2).
Response in tracks that have fewer events (for example Tutorials) is slow, but tolerable. For example, I just clicked on Events in Tutorials and it only took 5 seconds to respond.
Tutorials has 8 events in its track. Research papers has about 70. I assume that this indicates a O(Events) or O(Events^N) operation is happening to display this view.
Usually all I want is to actually get to a single Event so I can edit it....that is almost impossible right now. I spent 25 minutes yesterday just hanging/waiting so I could put an Agenda into the ACM SIGPLAN Townhall meeting that is one of the Events in the Research Papers Track. I have other updates that urgently need to be made to Events in this track and need this to be fixed to make this possible.Submitted by Dave Grove on 6 June 2015 at 17:25
