About the Scheduler And App
They’re free. The scheduler and app are two versions of the same tool that are free and available to everyone, whether you have already registered or plan to do so once you arrive on site.
They’re ready to go. You do not need your ESA member ID, abstract ID, or registration information to use them.
No login is required. There is an optional login you can set up in order to build and save a schedule in either tool. But it’s not necessary. You can read the whole program without it.
Sync your stuff. The login allows you to save and sync your information between the scheduler and the app. You can also sync between multiple devices.
The scheduler requires internet. It’s a website with special features. You can access it from any internet browser, including one on a mobile device. It will adapt to the size of your screen.
The app gives you more freedom. The app only requires an internet connection when you initially download and install it. After that, you can browse the meeting program from your device without additional internet access. You do need an internet connection for a small amount of external content (“external links” in the left hand menu, floorplans).
Wireless will be available in the convention center. You could use either the scheduler or the app, or both. It is up to you. We think the app will probably serve you better on site since wireless can be spotty.
We recommend using the scheduler first if you like to read on a computer. In advance of the meeting, you can browse the program, read abstracts, and plan your schedule on a computer.
We recommend installing the app before you travel. It will be ready to go when you arrive at ESA, and you can read the program on the plane.
Whatever works for you. You can use only the scheduler or only the app. Or you can use both and sync the information in either direction: scheduler to app, app to scheduler. It’s flexible so you can figure out what works best for you.
New users will need to set up a login. It’s easy. All you need is your email address and a password of your choosing. You do not need any existing login information for your abstract, membership, or meeting registration.
Previous users can reset their password. If you don’t remember it, this is a pretty easy process. You just need your email address.
The optional login allows some useful features. You can bookmark items of interest (My Favorites), add events to your schedule (My Schedule), and add people as contacts (My Contacts).
We hope you find the scheduler and app useful. If you have any trouble with either, please email Jennifer Riem (firstname.lastname@example.org) or come visit the Info Desk on site.
