Lead Authors

In addition to indicating which of the authors is the presenter (or are the presenters), you may wish to indicate other settings about the author. These could include which of the author(s) is/are co-presenters, who is the lead contact or for any other reason that your project requires.

Currently we able to set restrictions on a second flag or switch (with “Presenter” being the first. You are able to define the minimum and maximum number of people who can be indicated as this second flag or switch.

In most events, each person added to a submission is considered an author by default and we are then able to categorise each author further. It is rare to also use these flags or switches to indicate the person as an author (or co-author) but there are certain circumstances where this has been necessary – where the default setting or categorisation of a person added to a submission should not be an author. The system allows you to define the flags and switches you need to categorise the authors as your project dictates.

The language and labels used in each event can be unique to your event and we are able to change the label to match your usual language. So if you would rather indicate the “Speaker”, “Chair”, “Co-Chair” or anything else, please just let us know.
