Today's congress top tip: use the app

The WCPT Congress 2015 app is available for free download from the Apple Store, Android Play or Windows Phone Store.

This is the first time WCPT has produced an app to accompany a congress. It helps guide delegates through the congress programme, allowing them to create their own itineraries, providing information about the congress venue and exhibition, and issuing news updates.
“The app is designed to provide a personalised guide for congress delegates,” says Dan Moore, WCPT's website and IT consultant. “We suggest that delegates download it as soon as possible, so that they can get a feel for how it works – and start putting together their own itineraries.”
Features of the app include:
  • Full guide to the scientific programme, viewable by day or session type
  • Search function
  • Personalised itineraries linking with the congress iplanner
  • Complete lists of speakers, sponsors and exhibitors
  • General information about the congress and maps of venue
To download the app, go to Apple Store, Android Play or Windows Phone Store and search under “WCPT”. There's free wi-fi in the conference centre: look for the WCPT_FREE network. There's no password
