Why COMS

Supporting academic conferences since 2008

Good software evolves iteratively in reposnse to users' feedback. We have been listening to our users and adapting our software since 2008.

A design that is simple and solid

Conference participants are scattered around the world, using different bandwidths, computers and browsers. We design our software to minimise the load put on a user's device, to ensure that most conference participants can use our tool without strain.

A tool that is powerful and flexible

Each event is different and requires a different workflow. We design our software to cover as many options as needed while keeping it as simple and unclutttered as possible.

Keeping everything in one place

Many of the functions needed to manage an event are included in our tools, allowing a tight integration between different modules. For example, organisers can monitor the payment status of the speakers when selecting submissions and automatically register a selected group of participants to our virtual platform. Organisers can also import external user data via Excel uploads.

A well structured navigation

Event organisers need to access a large number of different functions in order to manage the event throughout its life cycle. Our navigation layout is designed to minimise the load on the users' memory, through an intuitive partitioning of the tasks at hand and by being always open (directly accessible) on wide screens.

Language integration

We maintain the user interface of our software in three languages: English, French and German. Organisers can use any combination of these languages for their event. We also provide a translation module that can make use of machine translations as well as human translations. This allows any left to right language to be used in addition to or instead of the three core languages.

Providing strong support

Complex software requires good documentation and meaningful support. We address all queries by analyzing them in context and tailoring our answers to the problem at hand.
