From our COO Marloes Koijen
For scientific and medical associations, abstracts are at the heart of their events. Containing the knowledge they wish to share, they form the base for conference programming and attracting potential visitors and sponsors. A complete integration of abstracts in your event app can be a critical success factor for your conference. Here there are some tips on how to make abstract support an extra convenient option.
How to improve abstract support convenience
1: Make sure your conference app supports all kinds of data and not just plain text. Images and formulas should not be an issue.
2: Communicate guidelines for layout. Just like in your abstract book, a uniform layout for the abstracts not only looks good, but it makes your abstracts more accessible as well, especially when read on mobile devices.
3: Check if your event app offers embargo options. Timing is everything and taking embargo demands into account is an absolute must in your choice for a app developer. Make sure they have experience.
4: Use an abstract handling system that generates XML files. With many abstracts used during a conference the use of a professional system can save you a lot of time, money and stress.
5: If the use of an abstract handling system is not an option, check with your app supplier. They should offer service options such as a template and/or a content management system that can assist you in integrating your abstracts.
