Events are only as good as the quality of their speakers and sessions. But whether you’re managing a Call for Papers for an academic conference or soliciting panel suggestions for a major industry event, wading through dozens or even hundreds of submissions is time-consuming. Yet it’s critical that you invest the time to find the best content for your conference, while offering timely communications to your speakers.
