Frequently Asked Questions

Extremely. You have all of the tools at your fingertips to build, edit, and tweak all of the forms in your X-CD system. You can build forms with conditional (if; then) display logic, or control field displays by groups, (i.e. members, speakers, exhibitors, etc.). Even though you can build your forms, when you start with X-CD, we will do all of your form building for you to make sure it’s done perfectly the first time. We like to measure twice for you, so you can cut once.
Yes. You can collect abstracts, papers, disclosures, copyrights, handouts, PowerPoints, ePosters, videos, and much more. Not only can you collect various types of data from speakers or submitters, but you can also run parallel calls if you need (i.e. a call for sessions first, then a call for abstracts, while running a call for symposia, colloquia, roundtables, panels, etc.)
With intuitive and integrated communication tools, it has never been easier for conference organizers to communicate with authors, co-authors, reviewers, chairs, and more. Our robust sets of integrated [Hotkeys] and email templates allow you to create hyper-personalized and branded emails to all of your stakeholders—and do it quickly and easily.
Absolutely! We refer to these types of submissions as “Parent-Child” submissions. The initial submitter is the one submitting the “Parent” (i.e. the Session/Panel proposal). They are then able to fill out the parent form and add “Children” (i.e. presenters or panelists) to their “Parent” submission. The children are notified, and can log in to further manage their own individual presentations. The entire “Family” can then be assigned to reviewers to review in its entirety, and if accepted, the whole family can be scheduled in the program and converted to a session.
Lots. We offer a huge assortment of import templates for various purposes. Ideally, you will use X-CD for all of your data collection to avoid the need for imports, but we understand that situations arise, and imports can be a huge time saver. Our “Session Import” is incredibly powerful, and allows you to import nearly everything you might imagine to get all your conference program data into the system. Think presentation title, abstract body, track/topics, session title, presentation order, session chairs, moderators, continuing education credit hours and types, presentation start/end times, session start/end times, day, room, and the list goes on….
Hundreds of canned reports that are actually easy to access and pull. Most of the reports as well allow for customization too. Find the report you are looking for, and then choose which fields you want to customize your report. If it’s a report you are going to want to come back to, you can favorite it, share it, and save a personalized URL for the report, so you can pull it in real-time, from anywhere you need.
Perfectly. Whether you are running a conference with 1 room, and 30 speakers (we work with tons of conferences of this size), or a large congress with 50+ rooms and thousands of speakers, our system will scale based on your needs. Our server infrastructure is ready for crunch time i.e the last couple of hours before your abstract deadline 🙂.

We offer various levels of support based on your needs. Even our most basic (included) level of support we think (and hear) is better than most. All of our software includes personalized onboarding by one of our highly experienced support staff. We will set up your system, including the build-out of all of your conference forms, including conditional display logic, site setup, branding, and recorded training for you and your team.

We do our best to always respond to customer support tickets and requests on the same day they are submitted—often within an hour or less. All of our support is provided by in-house X-CD staff and nothing is outsourced or automated.

Although we offer the industry’s most robust and all-encompassing suite of conference and association management solutions, we do integrate with other vendors. We can integrate with 3rd party Association Management systems like iMIS, Nimble, NetForum, Personify, Impexium, Aptify, Fonteva, YourMembership, and others. Our system also integrates with WordPress, Salesforce, Mailchimp, Google Scholar, Feathr, IEEE, iThenticate, and Xplore.
