AACR Annual Meeting 2016

​Technology at the Annual Meeting

The AACR is dedicated to bringing you the latest innovations in mobile technology to enhance and facilitate your Annual Meeting experience. We are pleased to offer the following technology products and services:

Free Wireless Internet Access. Wireless internet access will be available to meeting attendees in the Convention Center. 

Annual Meeting 2016 Program Guide App. Carry the Annual Meeting with you wherever you go—with or without a network connection. The Program Guide App is now available in the following versions:

The Program Guide App offers the following features:

  • Native Storage. Once downloaded, all App content and functionality is stored natively on your Apple or Android device and can be accessed without an Internet connection. (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.)

  • Meeting Abstracts. The full text of more than 5,600 abstracts is stored natively in the Apple and Android apps, so you can access the poster session and minisymposium presentations wherever you are.

  • Personal Itinerary. Sessions can be saved to your schedule to create a personal itinerary for the meeting. You can also import your itinerary from the online planner.

  • Search/Browse. You can browse Annual Meeting sessions by type and title and filter them by topic or organ site. 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.

  • Maps. Detailed floor plans of all Annual Meeting venues— including the complete exhibit hall and poster area map as well as the hotel map—are stored natively in the App for easy browsing.

  • Attendee Information. Look up the locations and hours of critical Annual Meeting services, including the shuttle bus schedules, the coat and bag check, and the child care/nursing mothers room.

  • Save, Share, Make Notes. You can add notes to sessions, presentations, or exhibitors and also mark them as favorites. Notes can be emailed for later retrieval.

Online Proceedings/Itinerary Planner. Search all Annual Meeting presentations (including all proffered regular abstracts) by author/speaker, title word, and keyword and create a personal itinerary for the meeting. Please Note: The titles of the regular abstracts that have been scheduled for oral and poster presentation are now available through the online itinerary planner. The full text of the regular abstracts will be posted to the planner at 4:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 16. (Late-breaking and clinical trial abstracts will be posted to the planner on Friday, April 15.)

Mobile Itineraries. Personal itineraries created in the Itinerary Planner can be exported as an iCalendar file into users’ personal Outlook, Google Calendar, or Apple iCal applications. Itineraries are also available as an HTML page that can be emailed to users’ smartphones (iPhone, Palm Pre/Centro, HTC Touch Pro, and Blackberry Curve/Storm/Pearl). The itinerary can also be imported into the Annual Meeting Program Guide App. 

Mobile Proceedings. The digital edition of the Proceedings contains abstracts of all proffered papers accepted for presentation. The abstracts are available in mobi and e-pub file formats for download to devices such as the Amazon Kindle, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Sony Reader, and the Barnes & Noble Nook.
