How to use Exordo to submit your abstract

The submission deadline for Symposia and Workshop proposals is August 24th, 2018. Figuring out what to submit can be difficult; fortunately, the submission process itself is simple. Here is a walkthrough of the submission process.

If you’ve never used Ex Ordo before, you will first need to register for an account.

Once you fill in your information and click on ‘Create Account’, you will need to agree to the terms of service to continue into the site.

Although the box appears to have a checkmark already in it, you will need to click on that checkmark to change its color and indicate that you agree to the terms of service.

Once you’ve agreed to the terms of service, you will see a dashboard with information related to the conference as well as the option to submit your abstract.

Clicking on the ‘Submit your Abstract Now’ button will take you to the starting page of the process. Note that the submission deadline for Workshop and Symposia proposals is August 24th, 2018–not August 3rd, 2018. To continue, click on the button below to ‘skip’ to the workflow, or click on the tab for the 1st step on the left.

Doing so will take you to the track selection menu, which will allow you to select the category for the proposal which you plan to submit.

Once you have selected the track, follow the step-by-step instructions for your submission. The submission is automatically saved in the system whenever you click on ‘Done, Go to the next step’ and you can edit your submission anytime before the submission deadline closes.

In step 5, you may notice the option to link your project information if it is in SciStarter. Scistarter is a registry of citizen science projects that also serves as a matchmaking service for citizen scientists and citizen science projects. If your proposal covers a project with a SciStarter entry, you can link that entry by entering your SciStarter project ID.

Once you’ve completed all the steps, your submission will now be visible on your dashboard and you will have the option of editing your submission up until the submission deadline. For Symposia and Workshop proposals, that deadline is August 24th, so don’t hesitate–submit today!
