I am making the script available that I wrote for putting the ISMIR 2007 proceedings together.
Input: multiple PDF files (one per paper), desired order, session names and mapping of papers to sessions.
Output: one big PDF file with page numbers, table of contents and author index.
This is ad-hoc, quick-and-dirty software! It won't be useful for creating other proceedings without reading and adapting the source code! But this could still be less work than starting from scratch.
What it does
Although Perl runs on many platforms, Linux will probably work best since some Linux commands are used in this script.
