The Conference Paper Assignment Problem (CPAP) is the problem of assigning reviewers to conference paper submissions in a manner intended to minimize whingeing. It is assumed that papers are reviewed by members of a preset program committee (PC), each of whom has the opportunity to bid on papers prior to the assignment algorithm being run. In this survey, we show that CPAP is in P if the only information given is individual program committee members' preferences for individual papers. However, if both preferences and expertise (based on, say, keywords) are given, the problem is potentially more complex.
