It's a very simple process to get you started with using Oxford Abstracts.
Before you can use Oxford Abstracts for reviewing, submitting or any other associated role, you will need to create an account with us.
You only need to do this once.
This will enable you to do everything that you need to do on the system, whether you are an account or event administrator, a submitter, reviewer, delegate or committee member.
You can choose to log in with Google, LinkedIn, or create an account with Oxford Abstracts.
If you choose to log in with Google or Linkedin, you will have the option to request a password creation email. You may want to do this if you decide you want to disassociate your Oxford Abstracts account with your third party one.
NB: If you have been invited to create an account by an event admin (e.g. as a reviewer, committee member etc), it is IMPERATIVE you create an account using the email address specified in your invitation email.
