'We have used Oxford Abstracts for over 10 years. The submission process has evolved over the years and is user-friendly for both submitters and administrators. The OA team is very responsive to questions and replies come within a few hours or less. The site is easy to navigate and customizable in a variety of ways. We have been extremely satisfied and will continue to use.'Society for Neuro-Oncology
'Support is amazing, there is nothing they won't help with. Easy to use once you have had a run through with them. All in one system with easy switch between submission stages. Customizable questions which is handy because not all events use the same processes. Love the blind-review function.'Kerry F, PCO
' I like its flexibility, and user friendliness which was the case for authors and reviewers, because there were minimum of users that needed additional help to use it. Numerous export options were handy and welcome.'Sven J.. Professor

Flexible symposium submission options

  • Choose from flexible symposium options – private, public or admin only
  • Attach submissions to symposia
  • Manage, edit and view symposia with multiple filter, order and search options


Anyone can submit a symposium but they can only attach an abstract to one of their own symposia or a symposium to which they have been invited. Invitees receive an email from the system with instructions on how to proceed and view the symposia to which they have been invited when they log onto the system. This is the most common type of setup and allows those setting up symposia to control who contributes.


Anyone can submit a symposium suggestion and anyone can attach their abstract submission to a symposium. Useful if you want to get ideas for symposia from the submitters in general, and see what emerges. Some symposia may end up being very large and you can easily rearrange the composition with the administration functions.

Admin only

Only the conference administrator can create a symposium, to which anyone can attach an abstract. Useful if you have a list of symposia to which you want people to submit abstracts.
