CATALYST® abstract management software makes it easier for associations, non-profits and other organizations to manage a call for abstracts, papers, presentations and posters.

CATALYST is completely configurable to your conference program requirements. You decide how you want your submission and review process to flow, how you want your forms configured, what requirements and limitations you want to set, scoring criteria and more, so that you can source the highest-quality conference content. Monitor the status of your submissions and reviews, manage communications and generate the reports you need for a more efficient event planning process. Then build your event schedule and publish it in real time to your website, the Attendify® mobile app and in a printed program book.
