The Program Guide App offers the following features:

(Note: The browser-based version of the App is a mobile-optimized website and requires an Internet connection. The performance of the mobile web version will depend on the speed and strength of the user's Internet connection.)

  • Personal Schedule. Sessions can be bookmarked and saved to your schedule folder to create a personal itinerary for the meeting. You can also create a schedule using the online Itinerary Planner and sync it to the app.
  • Search/Browse. You can browse Annual Meeting sessions by type, title, topic track, or organ site track. You can also search the complete list of invited and proffered presentations— including the full text of abstract presentations— by keyword or presenter. Annual Meeting exhibitors can also be searched or browsed by company name.
