Don’t worry, be hAPPy

This is where you can find anything and everything, except registered attendees. Search for speakers, sessions (including subsessions), exhibitors (including sponsors), and app pages. Simply type in the speaker name, session title, abstract ID number, exhibitor name, or sponsor name to find what you want.

Important Search Functionality
This section of the app searches under all four categories in this order: Sessions, Speakers, Exhibitors, & Pages. Example, if you search for a sponsor, you may have to scroll down a little to see the Exhibitors section of the search.

This section of the app will not pull/identify registered conference attendees. To find a registered conference attendee, you must be clicked on the Attendee icon. 

Important App Terminology
Subsession: The term “subsession” in the app means the paper presentations within a session. Posters are also included as subsessions of a specific track. You will also see that the six Mobile Tours are listed as subsessions under the main Mobile Tour session. This functionality allows us to keep the daily schedule in a shorter (less scrolling) format.

Speakers: This term is interchangeable with authors and roundtable participants (anyone who has their name included in a session). It also includes our keynote speaker. Not all of these speakers are registered attendees of the conference. So if you find someone in this section, they might not be in Buffalo.

Attendees: This section of the app is for confirmed registered attendees only. If someone hasn't registered for the conference, they will not appear in the Attendees list.

Questions/issues with the mobile app? Email

Best of all, registered conference attendees will have free WiFi during the conference so you will have all the information you need at your fingertips!

Accessing the searchable event schedule is easy! And, learning the ins and outs of how to use it can be too! To access any of the conference information, just visit the Schedule & Sessions page and click on the Online Searchable Schedule.

Download the mobile app to your mobile device and/or visit the desktop version today!
