To facilitate enhanced filtering options for conference programs, our platform now allows organizers to create custom tags and assign these tags to their sessions. These filters allow for multi-select filtering and can be combined with other existing session program filters. Tags are also displayed in each individual session to provide a consistent experience.

 

Coming Next - Targeting Late Summer/Fall

 

Extending the Community of Communities for Early-Stage Research

Morressier is opening the platform to a wider community with an enhanced account creation workflow that includes Single Sign-On (SSO) with society membership, ORCID, and Google credentials.

 

Disambiguating and Connecting Researchers to Research Output

Enhanced user profiles will leverage the Ringgold Identify database and other standard identifiers, such as ORCID iDs. This will assist the research community in building trust and integrity by enabling researchers to use persistent identifiers to validate professional information – affiliations, locations, funding, publications, and more – thus distinguishing themselves from other researchers, allowing others to confirm their identity, and ensuring researchers get credit for their work.

 

Section Editor and Topic Editor Role Enhancements

Enable conference organizers to create a streamlined experience for their Section/Topic Editors so that specified editors only view the content and actions required within their respective topic(s).  

 

Enhanced Access Model for Research Libraries

To support societies and publishers in managing access to events and research content on Research Libraries, we are enhancing our access model to restrict access by IP range.

 

New Sponsorship, Registration, and Scheduling Features

 

Schedule an appointment

To facilitate the networking opportunities among attendees (either on-site or virtual) the Morressier platform will support the planning of 1-1 meetings between attendees in order to ensure more interaction and engagement that fits individual's schedules and preferences.

 

Registration and ticketing

To provide an end-to-end event management experience for conference organizers, we are adding a new module for managing registration and ticketing for virtual and hybrid events.

 

Sponsorship in Live Events

To assist conference organizers in engaging sponsors in live events, we are building tools that will allow you to sell sponsorship opportunities in the form of ads and calls to action.

June 2022 - Flag Citation Manipulation and Filter Free and Paid Submissions

Integrity Checks - Flag Citation Manipulation

Citation manipulation is one of the most challenging issues facing scholarly publishing. When one author’s publications are overly cited in a paper, it is often difficult to identify because there is no universally agreed-upon rule of how often it is appropriate for an author to reference their own or their co-worker’s publications.

Challenges to publishing integrity like this can lead to high retraction rates, which damages reputations and negatively impacts the scientific community.

Using our new citation manipulation feature, publishers can easily identify articles that cite the same author’s research multiple times, so they can choose whether to exclude these articles from publication. Publishers can also see which of the flagged names belong to a person that played a role in compiling the volume they are currently reviewing.

 

Filter Free and Paid Submissions on Research Libraries

Societies and organizations have many different access models to research. Some types of research are open and available to all, whilst others are restricted to specific user groups. To make it easy and efficient to distinguish openly available content from restricted content, we now enable researchers to filter searches by free or paid content.

 

Search People in Events

To further improve attendee engagement at events, we’ve enhanced the search feature. As well as filtering by speakers, authors, delegates and chairs, users can now perform much deeper searches within a specific event. Searchers can now focus on name, organization and department, meaning far richer results.

May 2022 - Open Peer Reviews

Open Peer Reviews

Organizers can now choose a completely open peer review process. Authors will be able to see with full transparency the people who have reviewed their abstracts and papers. This can help promote open research and allow reviewers to receive credit for their voluntary work in the service of science.

 

April 2022 - One-to-One Video Calls and Personal Event Scheduler

One-to-One Video Calls

Networking opportunities through face-to-face engagement with peers are an important driver for individuals to participate in events, but in the age of the virtual event, these can be lost. In a virtual or hybrid setting, our platform enables video communication among attendees to increase engagement and delegate satisfaction. Enhancing Morressier’s networking and peering capabilities is an exciting development, already in high demand from our Conference user base.

This functionality allows Event attendees to connect and network through one-to-one video calls as an extension of the chat feature. One-to-One Video Calls expands the possibilities for virtual networking and socializing by giving attendees more flexibility to interact.

Whilst on the call, attendees can continue chatting or sharing content, as well as sharing their device screen for a richer collaboration experience. The experience is very like popular video conferencing tools including giving attendees control over audio and video. Morressier even provides a feature so that attendees can perform a technical check to ensure everything works smoothly during the call.

Personal Event Scheduler

Virtual events involve attendees dipping in and out of the online event, so ensuring attendee engagement is maximized can be difficult for Organizers. This feature will also be useful in the live setting, providing delegates with vital venue information and alerts for upcoming sessions.

Event Attendees can now manage a personalized event schedule to maximize their engagement. Event organizers can offer their attendees the ability to easily add sessions to their personal calendars, receive reminders, and track related content.

Attendees save the sessions they are interested in which can be added to their calendar. Notifications and updates are then automatically sent to remind attendees about the session, update them on changes and remind them of the session post-conference. This new feature will increase engagement and improve the attendee experience.

Publisher Research Libraries

Publishers can now aggregate events, presentations, and authors of individual society pages in a Research Library. Publishers need an enhanced Research Library experience to help expand their audiences and grow deeper relationships with stakeholders.

Abstracts, Poster & Presentations Conference Link

Event organizers can now import accepted abstracts to their Conference Hub, create new posters or presentations from scratch, and launch their event submission process without manually uploading data. This makes the submission management workflow a lot simpler.

Organizers invite the authors in their event to submit a poster or presentation for a conference based on their previously submitted abstract. Submissions can be categorized into topics and arranged into sessions to build out the conference program.

March 2022 - Change Requests and Resubmission of Abstracts

Change Requests and Resubmission of Abstracts

Are you getting mixed feedback on an abstract from reviewers? Do you see potential in the research, but feel that something is missing? Simply suggest changes to Authors and invite them to resubmit, even if the submission deadline has already passed. Asking reviewers to resubmit based on feedback is great for interaction between the Researcher and the Society.

Search Abstract Submissions

Conference organizers can now search Abstracts for an Event to quickly find a specific submission. Search by Unique ID, Title, Author, or email to quickly check on a specific Abstract or a particular Author’s work. Improving search capabilities allows Conference Organizers to easily find and take action on specific submissions and increases engagement with authors.

Session Chat with Hosts and Speakers

In the continued spirit of increasing engagement at conferences, Hosts and Speakers can now participate in session chats. This improvement allows session Hosts and Speakers participating in live sessions to join in the session chat channel to answer questions and engage more effectively with their audience.

February 2022 - Bring Audience to Stage and More Event Customizations

Bring Audience-to-Stage

“What we missed the most from on-site events is the face to face interaction with the audience”. “I wish I was able to interact with the speakers in real time”.

Are you an organizer that heard this feedback from your speakers and audience? Did your speakers feel “isolated” when presenting their work to your virtual audience?

To respond to these concerns and to increase engagement in live virtual events, we have released the Bring Audience to Stage feature. This set of tools builds engagement beyond traditional Q&A, text chats, and polls, enabling the audience to actively take part in the virtual experience through structured participation in live sessions. In particular, the tools allow the audience to join the main stage with audio and/or video in order to ask questions, make comments, share their views and interact in real time. Simultaneously, these new tools allow for full moderation and control of the experience flow and structure per event session.

Technical Checks and Connectivity Alerts for Event Hosts and Speakers

The experience and success of virtual events relies heavily on technology. We recognize that:

  • Your attendees are not always equal when it comes to tech-savviness.
  • If your speakers and audience experience technical problems, their whole experience can be impacted.
  • As a virtual event organizer, it is impossible for you to know which kind of device your participants will be using when they attend your event or how stable their connection is. And, we know that poor audio and video quality as well as technical difficulties can cause real physical stress to any participant who experiences them.
  • As a result, we want to ensure that everyone attending your event is technically ready and confident so they can focus on their presentations and engaging with their peers.

 

Therefore, we have added automated, in-platform tech checks for all participants of live and networking sessions. These tech checks guide the participant in a journey that checks for the right browser permissions as well as camera and microphone checks to ensure that their devices are properly functioning.

In live sessions, speakers and moderators are instantly notified of any connectivity issues they might encounter, so as to be more prepared and proactive.

Article View Always has Citable Metadata

You can now maintain full control over the visibility of submissions and videos in your event, while simultaneously allowing your event and content to be discovered and cited by a wider community during and after the conference.

Whether an event is public or restricted, readers can view the title, author list, abstract, and conference information for every submission.

 

Link from Article View to Content Library

Drive traffic to your Content Library and allow new interested readers to discover your community. Every submission in your collection now links out to your full Content Library, so you can harness the power of the Morressier platform to engage a wider community than ever before.

 

More Event Customization Options

Not all events are the same. A new show/hide feature allows you to set-up an event and select only the sections that are applicable. For example, for poster libraries the “Sessions” section can now be hidden, or for events without Exhibitors the “Exhibitor” section can be hidden. Customize your view with a simple on/off toggle option.

Moderated Q&A Sessions

For Q&A sessions, you may set a flag for whether the Q&A session should be moderated or not.

 

New Action Cards Supporting Event Set Up

In addition to the 4-step wizard, we have improved the session awareness when you are working on setting up an event with new “cards” for prompting each stage of the workflow.

 

Improved Management of Event Registrants

New tools make it easy to add registrants to your Morressier hosted event.

Registrant Overview
View all registrants associated with your event as well as the status of their Morressier account so that you can be proactive in reminding users to sign up and join the event.

Bulk import of Event Registrants
Add as many registrants as you wish through a single or multiple excel imports into the platform. The import tool will guide you through the process, highlight any errors in your data and give you the ability to correct them on the spot, easily and effortlessly.

Quick Import of late registrants
Do you often have to deal with late registrants that need immediate attention? Our platform allows you to quickly add and notify those users instantly. All you need to provide is their email address.

January 2022 - Streamline Event Set-Up and Q&A for a Poster or Presentation

Streamline Event Set-Up

As part of our commitment to make the set up of events more streamlined, customized and intuitive, we have improved the workflows for event creators and managers. Set-up your event in four steps. Capture all the necessary information to get started and the platform will guide you for the rest.

 

Q&A for a Poster or Presentation

At Morressier, we’re all about keeping your audience and community coming back to engage with content even after the conference has ended. To this end, we have added a Q&A section to each individual poster or presentation page, where users can comment and ask questions of the author outside of the context of a live session.

 

Nominate Abstracts for Event Proceedings

Abstract and Proceedings Management are stronger together. When using the Morressier Platform to manage your content workflow from the Call for Abstracts all the way through to submitting your proceedings for publication, you can now choose to invite the authors of selected abstracts to submit an article to your Call for Papers. The results are many-fold:

  • A more efficient process for your authors eliminating duplicate steps
  • A more efficient process for your staff
  • End-to-end visibility of the path that a piece of research has taken through the various submission and review stages when considering it for inclusion in your conference proceedings
