New IEEE Event Finder™ app helps members find IEEE events nearby
(posted 16 September 2016)
With help from members in Region 10, a new app to help IEEE members identify IEEE events or conferences has been released. The app will use the geolocation feature of the user's phone to identify events happening nearby.
Using the search functionality allows the user to find events by:
- Event/Conference title
- Date and event types
- IEEE sponsoring Societies/Councils
"My assessment of the mobile app is that it is well done," states Mike Fallenstein, IEEE Region 4 Communications Committee Chair. "It is easy and intuitive to navigate. It has a very modern feel to it like the newer apps released by other companies. There will always be enhancements that will be wanted by users, but I think this is really excellent for a first release."
