Mobile App Users Guide 

1. Download the app

There are two ways to download the app:
1) You use a QR Reader to scan the QR code below.

2) Visit the URL below using your phone or tablet's internet browser.



2. Add the app to your homescreen

If you prefer, for quick and easy access to the mobile app, you can add it to the homescreen of your phone so it will appear as an icon along side of your other apps.

When you first visit the app, this dialogue box will appear, and you can install the app at that time. If you choose not to install the app - you can access it by using the QR code or URL again.


3. Create your attendee profile (optional)

You can create an attendee profile for yourself.

Note: this profile is viewable by anyone who accesses the mobile app. When you registered for Scientific Assembly, you were given the option of adding your name to the mobile app. If so, you can add additional information to your profile. If you selected not to add your name, you can still create a profile under the "Attendees" tab.

In the upper right-hand corner the homescreen, select "Login" and add your preferred email address to create a profile.
