Whova lists all the sessions on each event day. For the IBNS event, all posters are available each day. You can search by keywords, title, or name.

Personal Schedule in “My Agenda”
The session includes the abstract, poster, video/audio presentations, speaker profiles, etc. You can add posters to your own personal agenda for later reference.

Participating in sessions through the app
While viewing a poster, you can click Like, ask questions or leave comments, and rate the session. You can take down your personal notes too.


Plan Your Networking

With a little planning, you can make many valuable connections. Explore who else is attending the event. You can search by keywords including company name or title. You can click attendees in the list, and see their professional profiles. You can take a note, or request contact information.

Recommended Connections for You
Click the Recommended tab on the top of the Attendees list to find Whova’s recommendations about people you may be interested in networking with. Click into each item to see attendees who came from the same city or have the same affiliations, educational backgrounds, or interests as you. Make sure that your profile has enough information to match with other attendees. To edit your profile, click the pen icon in your profile preview

Say-Hi, In-app Messaging, and Private Group Chat
You can see the professional background information of fellow attendees, and say “Hi” with a click.

Or, start chatting through private in-app messages. By clicking the button on the top of the page, you can invite more people to join the conversation. Just convert it to a private group chat.

Meeting scheduler
Use the meeting scheduling feature to suggest a time and a place to virtually meet someone. If your request is accepted, you’ll see a notification and it’ll also show up in your agenda.

Depending on your interests, you can enable notifications from certain topics on the Community Board. At top-right corner of the Community Board, click the vertical dots (settings) and find “Notification Settings”.
