A feature-rich mobile app for SIGGRAPH 2014 is now available for download. The app, which works with iPhone, iPad and Android devices, can be used to create conference schedules and network with other SIGGRAPH attendees and exhibitors. Conference attendees without smartphones and those who prefer to manage their schedules and contacts by desktop can access the web version of the SIGGRAPH 2014 app.
The unique social networking aspect of the SIGGRAPH 2014 mobile app allows users to view a comprehensive list of conference attendees and build a contact list of exhibitors, friends and colleagues who will be at the conference. The app's messaging feature also enables users to contact other attendees and exhibitors via private message. In addition to networking and establishing daily conference calendars, the application can also be used to request and schedule one-on-one meetings with exhibitors and attendees.
Registered conference attendees should have received instructions on how to download the app and update their SIGGRAPH 2014 profiles, but the application is also available directly from the iTunes store and Google Play.
