Pro Tips for the Conference Mobile App
Share |

Accessing the searchable event schedule is easy! And, learning the ins and outs of how to use it can be too! The Schedule at a Glance provides and overview of the conference schedule. The Online Searchable Schedule provides full details of all sessions and presentations.

Conference Registration Login Credentials (for the mobile app and online desktop version): an email invitation to download the app will be sent to you once you register for the conference. If you try to log in to the app without using the email invitation link, your first and last name must be typed in exactly how you registered for the conference. If you used a middle initial or nickname, you must type in the information exactly as you registered to receive the verification email. Can't find or remember your information? Email registration@acsp.org.

App Terminology
In the best case scenario, if we could change these terms to ACSP’s familiar jargon, we would. However, these terms below are hard-coded into the app by the developer who works with many academic conferences.

  • 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.
  • "Presenting at": When searching under speakers, this means an individual is affiliated with a session in one role or another (presenting author, co-author, discussant, moderator, roundtable participant). It doesn’t mean they are the presenting author of everything you see listed.

Questions/issues with the mobile app? Email website@acsp.org.

And 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!
