Center your review process around talent, not toggling

Submittable’s abstract management system keeps reviewers focused on selecting and scoring the best conference sessions rather than downloading files or shuffling through papers and proposals. Reviewers can access their assignments online from anywhere, at their convenience.

Centralized access

Reviewers can assess all abstract submission materials in one place. Communication tools like review notes and in-app messaging encourage team-wide collaboration.

Multiple review options

Choose between a simple thumbs up/thumbs down process or create custom review forms that can include numeric scoring and in-depth feedback.

A multi-stage process

Oversee multiple review stages and tracks easily, from first pass to final selection. Create rounds that don’t require review, like a waitlist or hold bucket.

Encourage growth

Submittable’s flexible online platform can be used for countless event processes, as well as content collection and review needs across your organization. It can also dramatically improve the quality and quantity of abstract submissions you receive.
