The American Society for Surgery of the Hand has demonstrated they are leading the pack with regards to technological integration in their annual conference.  At the 2011 ASSH meeting they introduced a fully-functional meeting-integrated app that was available (and continues to be) available for free.  The app includes a plethora of resources such as viewing the conference schedule, a personal calendar, program, maps, speakers, presentations, ePosters, share contact information, and search for interesting topics.  Even more impressive was the integration among the different functionalities.  For example, you can select a presentation to attend and the app will remind you the presentation is coming up, will show you on a map where to go, presents you with the abstract and notes for the presentation, and allows you to search for other talks by the same author/presenter.  All of these features are well integrated and make the conference experience much more interactive and interesting.  It is my hope that other specialty societies will notice this app and integrate similar features into their annual meetings.
