has been powering Academic Conferences since 2007. Since then they have helped academic conference organisers build great conferences across Ireland, UK, and Europe.
|Why did we build Ex Ordo?
We have spoken to hundreds of academic conference organisers about the
issues they face in running a successful conference. Again and again, we
heard that conference chairs underestimated the amount of work involved
in running an academic conference. There are hundreds of tasks that
consume an organiser’s time – following up with colleagues, finding
reviewers, getting authors to submit on time, sending out reminders,
chasing delegates for payments, building timetables and proceedings, to
name but a few.

We learnt that some conference chairs use a manual system for conference
organisation, while some use some form of online system. But while the
existing online systems save some time and effort, they do not address
many of the fundamental problems that conference chairs have.
So we asked – is there a better way? The result is Ex Ordo. It has all
the elements of a standard conference management system. The real value
comes from the unique workflow, timelines, reminders, statistics,
reporting and 1-click features that we have incorporated.
Ex Ordo changes the game in academic conferencing, by bringing order to the chaos of conferencing.
