Conference app


The vote of the audience counts

Next to the expertise of the award committees, the opinion of the audience is of high value to us. We are therefore pleased to offer the audience the possibility to vote during parallell sessions and the poster and demo sessions through a conference app. The votes of the audience will be included in the overall decision of the award committees.
