Still Accepting Abstract Submissions Through Email?

Still Accepting Abstract Submissions Through Email? Get an Abstract Management System


Do you still accept abstract submissions through email? If so, we've got bad news: You're probably losing a lot of good data. Even though it's easy to use and free to set up, email is an incredibly inefficient way to handle scientific data. And no matter how hard you try, it's not going to get any better. 

People have trouble submitting their abstracts on time because they have to use email to send them in, which can be slow and unreliable. Email doesn't allow you to track who has submitted and when, either—so there's no way of knowing if someone hasn't sent in their work yet or just hasn't sent it at all!

Also because the number of emails sent per day is increasing at a faster rate than the speed at which our brains can process information. In fact, on average, we receive about 121 emails per day—and spend about 10 hours in total dealing with them!

Takeaway: An actual abstract management system will help keep your conference running smoothly!

With access to all features. Without any time limitation on usage. It was a plain, simple free plan. Until we realized it wasnt. We were giving up too much for nothing.
