This year's conference will use a mobile app powered by PheedLoop to help you save sessions to your personal schedule, view maps of the venue, access handouts, see the list of attendees, view announcements from the organizers, learn about sponsors and exhibitors, and more. The conference organizer expect that most attendees will use the mobile app to navigate the conference and therefore do not intend to print a full program in order to be more environmentally conscious. Details on accessing the app will be provided here and via email as we get closer to the conference. Below are some screenshots of last year's mobile app to demonstrate some of the functionality.
On your conference registration form, you may notice an option to request a Mentor to meet with you at the ICEC. The question asks you to identify your current level (what level of student or post-graduate you are, or that you are an early career professional) as well as what specific issue(s) you'd like to talk with a Mentor about. Conference organizers will match you with a Mentor, put you in touch with one another before the meeting, and let you arrange a time to meet with your Mentor on your own schedule while in Toronto. A "Mentoring Room" will be available throughout the conference for pairs to meet at their convenience. Mentors and Mentees frequently stay in touch long after the conference - this could be an excellent opportunity to being or deepen your professional network!
If you did not sign up for a Mentor when you registered, please contact us to request one now!
