Go to Abstract Settings and Submission Types and configure your abstract management system based on your requirements. Then go to Form builder > Abstract submission form to customize the submission form with your own custom questions.
To allow authors to submit their abstracts, you need to go to Abstracts & Reviews (enable the abstract & peer reviews app under Power Ups if not already enabled). Once enabled, an author can register as an attendee on the event website, log in to the dashboard and click on My Abstracts.
Under My Abstracts view, author has to click on Submit Abstract button and fill the fields as required. Author has the option to either save it and submit later or submit right away. Once submitted, author would have the option to edit the abstract (that option can be disabled by the event admin).
The event admin would assign the submitted abstract to a reviewer or multiple reviewers to review the abstract. The reviewers will receive notifications about the new assignment and can then log in to their dashboard and review the abstract.
Reviewers can rate the abstract submitted and leave remarks. The event admin sees an average rating of the abstract based on all the ratings submitted from the assigned reviewers for that abstract. The event admin has the sole right to either accept the abstract or reject it or send for a re-review.
Once the abstract is accepted, a notification is sent to the author of the same.
Later, event admin can create a session for the accepted abstract and associated speaker/s using Program Builder. You have to make the author as speaker before his/her name is displayed in the speakers list.
