Frequently Asked Questions About SciMeetings

Who should I contact if I didn’t receive an invitation to complete my SciMeetings upload for the ACS Fall 2020 Virtual Meeting?

If you were the presenter of an accepted abstract for the meeting who selected the All-inclusive option, and did not receive an invitation from Morressier to complete your submission, contact scimeetings@acs.org. Please include your name, the email address used in your submission, and the title of your poster or presentation. You should then receive an invitation within 24 hours. Please check your spam folder to ensure the email is received. If a co-author was listed as the presenter, please coordinate with your co-author to complete the process.

I received an invitation to submit – now what do I do?

In order to complete the process, you must use the email link to access and log in to the SciMeetings platform to ensure all additional information is correct, such as co-authors. You MUST also accept the terms and conditions to obtain the license associated with receiving your DOI. You may also update your presentation if there were any mistakes that you would like to rectify. 

I did not select the All-inclusive option. Who do I contact if I would like to reinstate my abstract and presentation?

Please contact scimeetings@acs.org and provide your name, the title of your abstract, and your abstract number. Once we receive this information, an email will be sent from Morressier to you with a link and option to complete the process on SciMeetings, and your abstract and presentation will be included on the platform.

When will I receive a DOI and CC BY-NC-ND license for my conference materials?

Your DOI will take 3-5 days to process after terms and conditions have been accepted. As the lead author, you will receive this information by email. Please share the DOI with your co-authors. You can also find the DOI on the platform when available, by selecting Copy DOI. 

How do I add my co-authors to my SciMeetings submission?

In the navigation panel on the left of the page, select “My submissions”. Select the poster or presentation you wish to edit by clicking the “Edit submission” button. Select the tab “Invite co-authors” and add their names and email addresses as they appear on your conference materials. Click “Save” and an invitation will be sent to your co-author(s). You may add co-authors up until October 30.

How do I add my photo and affiliation to SciMeetings?

Log into SciMeetings with your ACS ID, click on your name in the upper right corner, then select “Settings”. Click “Edit details” to add your affiliation. You can upload a photo to personalize your account.

Why are PDFs the only file type accepted for posters and presentations?

The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a universally accepted format for document display independent of application software, hardware, and operating system. This is the best way to ensure your poster or presentation is presented exactly as you crafted it, whether viewed on a monitor, tablet, or mobile device. PDFs also facilitate download and offline viewing of your work. While the primary poster or presentation must be in PDF format, supporting materials can be uploaded in the native file format.

What types of metadata or supporting files can be uploaded and how are they viewable on SciMeetings?

SciMeetings accepts posters or presentations in PDF format. Title, author, affiliation, keywords, and abstract are captured and viewable on SciMeetings.

Additional files may be uploaded as supporting information. The following file formats are supported (with a maximum file size of 150 MB):

  • Images – jpg, png, bmp
  • Audio – mp3
  • Video – mp4
  • Data – csv, xls
  • Other – PDF
