Conference App

Two mobile apps are available: one from Converia and one which is written in-house. Both are progressive web apps (PWA), that can be installed on your mobile device. The schedule information is the same on both apps.

Installation instruction, from any of the app homepage:

  • Safari: Click on the share button (square with upwards arrow ), and use the "Add to Home Screen" button. Another screen enables you to add the app.
  • Chrome: In the Chrome menu, click on "Add to Home Screen".
  • Firefox: Click the “home with a plus” icon, that appears on the address bar of the browser, when the main page is opened.
In-House-Written Conference Web App

  • full schedule access
  • Search function for parallel sessions by speaker name or talk title
  • General conference information, highlights, the campus map and the floor plan are included.
Converia Web App

The Converia app is available at

  • and also gives you access to the full schedule.
  • In the "Information" section, accessible from the bottom of your screen, you will find general conference information, as well as the campus map and floor plan.
  • This app also enables you to save the session you might be interested in. To do so, you need to log in with the Converia login/password that was used to submit/edit your talk data. Recovery of the password can be done from the app. The (empty) star on the left of the session description will allow to mark it.
  • On the other hand, this app can take a long time to load. This unfortunate fact is outside of the control of the conference organizers.
