IABSE Newsletter 2016/09

See you in Stockholm next week!

As the Congress organisers are busy wrapping up with their last minute preparations for the congress, the IABSE Secretariat is also getting ready for the around 150 committee members and accompanying persons attending the IABSE Annual Meetings in the beginning of the week.

One of the major developments in IABSE conferences is the usage of its conference Mobile App. This user-friendly App will provide conference participants all important information they need for the conference such as sessions with downloadable abstract papers, location maps, biographies of keynote speakers, sponsors and exhibitors to name a few. The App also allows each participant to control with whom they want to share their contact details for their own privacy. Networking between participants is also made easy with its messaging functionality.

Registered congress participants may scan the QR Code below to downloaded the conference Mobile App:
