    IEDM 2012: There's a new app for that

    December 11, 2012 8:31 AM by Solid State Technology
    A year ago an SST reader, fed up with all-to-familiar conference chaos, told us about an App he'd built specifically to navigate through the International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM), browsing and reading papers and scheduling and mapping to one's heart's content.

    This year, the folks at IEDM took up the challenge themselves. Designated the "Official Application for [the] 2012 International Electron Device Meeting," this app lets users view the entire schedule of IEDM papers and sessions , and plan attendance and meetings accordingly. You can mark the sessions and papers you wish to attend, download and read any paper, keep track of daily plans, etc. Search capabilities include paper type (student, late, invited), with updated schedule data. Note that full papers are available only to registered IEDM 2012 attendees; full papers will be downloadable from IEEE Xplore about two weeks after IEDM, but only IEEE members can access them.

    Base requirements are iPhone 3GS or newer, iPod touch 3rd-gen or newer, and iPad with iOS 4.0 or later; it also works with Android 2.2 and up. You can download the IEDM 2012 app at iTunes or at Google Play . (If your device isn't compatible with the IEDM 2012 app, you can still use the digital scheduler on a Web-only version, accessible here .)
