Programme on your phone
Conference Compass provides a mobile application that brings the conference program to your mobile phone, right into your pocket. It allows you to make your personal program by marking favorite presentations, authors, and topics. Furthermore, you can add scores and comments to presentations, so that after the conference you will recall the interesting things that you have seen.

The application is available for the iPhone (and iPad and iPod Touch), Android, BlackBerry and many types of phones from Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, Samsung, etc. The app will thus most probably run on your own phone, even if it is a simple one, and since it is offered to you by MIE 2011 it is included in your registration fee! So we hope you will make maximum use of it.
Go to find out more about the Conference Compass mobile app and for instructions on how to download it to your phone.

All apps will be online 26th
