Thomson Reuters Releases ScholarOne Abstracts Version 3.13

Product Updates Include MyIntinerary, a Mobile Application for Meeting Attendees

Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, August 11, 2011 — Thomson Reuters today announced the release of ScholarOne Abstracts version 3.13, the latest update to the comprehensive workflow management system for scholarly conferences.

The newest version of ScholarOne Abstracts features a redesign of the Itinerary Planner tool, including a new mobile application to give meeting attendees planning tools on the go.

The Itinerary Planner tool, traditionally used by societies to share their content and by meeting attendees to schedule sessions and organize their conference details, now offers new features such as collapsible tables, customized presentation proofs and a simplified search option. The tool's redesign makes it easy for meeting planners to find, view, edit and share all of the information they need, and to extend these benefits to attendees.

Also included in the enhanced Itinerary Planner is MyItinerary, the new mobile application for ScholarOne Abstracts that allows meeting attendees to manage their personal itineraries using their mobile devices. MyItinerary maximizes the use of meeting content and furthers on-site engagement by replacing traditional bulky conference guidebooks with a streamlined application available for use on most smartphones. Meeting attendees can browse conference sessions and presentations and add them to their itinerary while viewing other important conference details like venue maps and agendas.

"The latest release of ScholarOne Abstracts represents the next generation of itinerary planning," said Keith Collier, vice president and general manager at Thomson Reuters. "The introduction of our mobile application, MyItinerary, is a significant step forward in the way meeting planners and attendees can share content and make the conference experience even more valuable."

ScholarOne Abstracts version 3.1.3 has also been updated to support additional browsers and operating systems. The list has been expanded in response to changes in the types of systems in use across the industry.

ScholarOne Abstracts is the industry's foremost technology for abstract management, enabling an efficient workflow solution that accelerates abstract acceptance and supports the leading research presentations at scholarly meetings and conferences. It is part of the ScholarOne series of workflow solutions for the submission and review of manuscripts, abstracts, proceedings, books, grants and awards, and production.
