App: Your smart congress companion
With the EAUN16 App you have instant access to the most important information of the 17th International EAUN Meeting via your smartphone. You will be able to browse the complete scientific programme by day, topic, speaker, and create your own personal programme thanks to the planner. You can easily find the rooms and exhibitor booths on the floor plans and receive daily news. In your personal congress bag you can save all relevant information, which you can email after the congress so you can easily review all scientific content at a later stage. You do not need constant internet access and can use the App offline.
