Welcome to the new online research submission system. You will be able to view submitted abstracts,
print them, and score them all via a user friendly web interface. This will allow you to score the
abstracts at your pace and availability.
You should receive a username and password from the system administrator.
You can use that information to log in at the right.
Once you log in you will be presented a list of abstracts to score. Please either view online
or print out the abstracts. Once you have read the abstracts carefully score the abstract. You can
go back and alter any scores you have submitted if you feel the need.
Once you have finished scoring all of the abstracts you need to mark the "I have completed scoring"
button to indicate that you have no more changes to make. You WILL NOT be able to alter any more scores
once you mark this so please be careful about doing so.
