You asked and we listened! To reduce our footprint on the environment, ASHG is no longer offering the full printed Program Guide that we have in previous years. Instead, the most important meeting details, including convention center maps and a schedule overview, will be published in the Program-at-a-Glance. Full information can be found on the official ASHG 2017 Mobile App (available for iOS or Android), Online Planner, and meeting website.
The online planner and meeting app can help you plan your schedule before the meeting and add to or modify it on site. Our tips:
- Create an account with the Online Planner to browse and save sessions of interest, create your schedule, and sync across desktop and mobile devices.
- While on site, you can flag sessions to track continuing education; browse sessions, posters, and exhibit booths by location; and take notes.
- The app is a helpful networking tool – use it to email speakers and message with other attendees who have opted in to these functions.
- If you prefer another calendar app, you can export your schedule to any other app supporting .ics files. Similarly, you can add personal meetings and events to your ASHG 2017 calendar.
Prefer the printed versions? No problem! Our Documents and Downloadables page has printable versions of all Program content, as well as other useful materials.
See you in Orlando!
