Abstract management is so much easier
Flexible and intuitive, our CATALYST® abstract management platform will simplify your call for papers and presentations.
Configure CATALYST to match your workflow and requirements. Dynamic forms and visual cues guide submitters and reviewers through the process. Built-in email tool and drag-and-drop schedule builder simplifies time-intensive event management tasks. And role-based dashboards and user-friendly reports give meeting planners access to important data.
But the biggest feature of the CATALYST abstract management system is your assigned Omnipress project manager who handles all setup and serves as your primary point of contact the entire time you work with us.
