The official app for the 28th International Symposium on ALS/MND

Would you like to have your programme, abstracts and speakers’ information with you at all times? How about chat to other delegates or post your questions and ideas on a noticeboard? We created a mobile app that will allow you to do all that and more!


Symposium app on a smartphone


The app is managed by the ‘Meeting Application’ platform and contains the following features*:

  • Full programme for this year’s symposium
  • Personalised programme, where you can create your own itinerary of sessions you want to attend
  • Live notifications about changes to the programme (ie location or speaker)
  • Information about speakers presenting at the Symposium and their abstracts – you can rate each talk and add a comment
  • Networking chat to ask questions and share ideas with other app-users
  • Sending private app messages to other delegates (don’t worry, you can block unwanted users if you wish)
  • Floor plan of the venue and a map with places of interest in Boston
  • Audiovisual and other resources that you might find useful
  • Surveys and fun quizzes

*features will be added gradually as the Symposium approaches


Please see the Quick Guide for instructions on how to download and use the app.
