We have prepared a handy app for ITRS, downloadable via It is a web-app, meaning it requires no installation and can be used in practically all operating systems: Android, iOS or Windows smartphone. 

Simply go to the link using your smartphone/tablet and add the webpage to your homescreen (easier if you open the link via Chrome/Safari which have the "Add to homescreen" function) - and all the conference info will be there - schedule, abstracts, venues, and lots of travelling tips for your trip in Hong Kong!

All info in the app will be updated when there is internet connection - but the content will stay there even when there is no internet!
