Abstractlogic is a multi-channel platform designed to provide a unique conference programme experience for both the abstract submitter and the organiser. Abstractlogic processes complex scientific content requirements, allowing associations and PCOs to fully manage the abstract submission, reviewing and publishing processes of their conferences. As the scientific programme is finalised, Abstractlogic’s features provide organisers with the ability to publish the content in the form of a website, multiplatform mobile apps, an online content library and e-posters, delivering a complete Paperless Conference solution.
The way we manage content now is very different to the way we used to manage content 10 and even 5 years ago. We live in a world of touch-screen mobile devices in which information is shared within seconds across thousands of miles to millions of people. The challenge is how to thrive in this fast-paced process of digitalisation, and create solutions that are both cost-effective and environmentally-friendly.
With Abstractlogic, all content and data is collected and delivered completely digitally, and the software is very user-friendly for both the submitter and the organiser. Abstractlogic will simplify the submission, administration, reviewing, scheduling and publishing of the scientific content for a conference in order to ultimately create a paperless ecosystem.
Shocklogic supported the 15th World Congress for Cervical Pathology and Colposcopy in London. The challenge was to distribute the conference’s scientific content among all delegates and across a complex conference setting while reducing the conference carbon footprint by 90%. The team at Shocklogic were able to produce a “paperless” congress, providing a snapshot of how scientific and academic content will be managed at conferences of the future. The “paperless” dimension of the event was implemented by the creation of an Abstractlogic ecosystem that consisted of more than 300 available e-posters, a 24-hour webcast channel and a powerful mobile app solution.
Shocklogic’s success is a result of the innovative and unique way we deal with high-volume scientific content. Abstractlogic delivers distribution channels that not only save time for the delegate but also help to save the environment. Our team shares the commitment to constantly contribute to the delivery of rich scientific and educational programmes. These deliver the opportunity for new advances in our understanding of diseases, sustainability and better health care, helping us move towards our goal to teach and train the next generation to overcome the issues that we face today.
The effect (and need) of the paperless event does not stop or slow down. We constantly get requests for the system to expand and grow. We add features and functionalities on a weekly basis. As all the digital content is available in one unified library, future association members, submitters, reviewers and organisers will be able to access previous scientific content to compare with existing data. The system also is transitioning to provide organisers with a platform for running hybrid events and the base for an integrated eLearning engine.
