Is it possible to bulk upload submissions in OCS?

I am working with a conference that has already collected submissions in another form, but they want to use OCS to perform review and generate the conference website. Is there any way to upload these submissions in bulk if they could be converted to, say, a CSV that contained all of the information that would normally be entered one at a time?

Thank you for your help.

Hi @lizrodrigues,

There’s an XML import plugin (see the Conference Manager’s import/export tools), but you’ll need some XML expertise and perhaps other tools in order to convert the data from whatever form it’s in into the specific XML dialect that OCS expects. The DTD is here: ocs/native.dtd at ocs-2_3_6-0 · pkp/ocs · GitHub

Thank you! I will take a look.
