Conference Planning made simple
Your one-stop spot for your next academic conference
ConferenceBit is an all-inclusive conference planning, organization, and hosting tool. We have streamlined the process of calling for proposals, creating conference events (panels, roundtables, poster sessions, etc.), and publicizing conference information. ConferenceBit’s features were designed specifically with small to medium sized conferences in mind.
Call for Proposals and Review Submissions
Host your call for papers using a customized URL and conference home page. Receive, sort, and rate paper, poster, or roundtable submissions. Accept or reject proposals. Ability to assign multiple administrators or section heads to review submissions or create events.
Create Conference Events and Manage Participants
Create and schedule conference events such as panels, poster sessions, luncheons, receptions, or workshops. Field in-house surveys for participants (e.g. transportation needs, dietary restrictions, etc.) where responses are tied to user database. Ability to sort and message participants. Publish your conference’s itinerary.
Automate your call for proposals
Users can submit proposals for review and upload completed papers as Word or PDF documents. Attendees can then confirm their participation in panels or roundtables. Also, the system allows users to be assigned and to confirm additional panel service roles such as serving as chair or discussant.
Message individually or by group
Administrators have the ability to sort users into various groups (e.g. those that have not submitted a file for their paper, users that have not yet confirmed their discussant role, etc.) and broadcast messages. Administrators can view and contact users based on their proposal status.
Filter proposals by keywords
Building panels and other conference events has never been easier. Users select from administrator-chosen keywords to identify the topic(s) of their proposal, making it fast and simple to group submissions by topic. Administrators can then assign these filtered results to panels using a simple drag-and-drop interface.
Customizable Conference Home Page
Tailor the look of your conference landing page. Leave a custom message to users on the conference homepage (e.g. instructions, welcome message, etc.) with the ability to personalize the page with a background photo.
Generate a printable conference itinerary
Once conference events and times are finalized, generate an itinerary that lists all conference events (panels, roundtables, poster sessions, luncheons, etc.) by time and location. In addition to an online searchable version of your itinerary, users can also download the itinerary directly as a PDF. Administrators can also mail the itinerary to users all at once.
Search Your Itinerary or Filter by Keywords
Your published itinerary can be searched by users so that they may easily locate information on their own panels or roundtables. Itineraries can also be filtered by keyword to produce an interest-based list. Asynchronous conferences will automatically sort published itinerary items by type.
