To allow speakers to submit their papers, you need to enable the Abstracts & Reviews (enable the abstract & peer reviews app under Power Ups if not already enabled). Once enabled, a speaker can register as an attendee on the event website, login to the dashboard and click on My Abstracts. In My Abstracts, speaker has to click on Submit Abstract and fill the fields as required. Speaker has the option to either save it and submit later or submit right away. Once submitted, speaker has 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 speaker of the same. Later, event admin can create a session for the accepted abstract and associated speaker/s using Program Builder.
