Conference web app:  SCHED

Our official conference web app is SCHED. With SCHED, you can set up your own conference agenda and an optional personal profile.

You should have received an email from SCHED when you registered for the conference. The sending address is ‘Sched’ <[email protected]>. Your logon uses the email address you used when registering. If you can’t find it, you can do a password reset.

Password reset

  1. Go to the SCHED login page.
  2. In the Log in with Sched box, select the link Reset your password.
  3. Type the email address you used when you registered for the conference. Answer the robot/security questions.
  4. Check your email as described above and follow the directions in the email to complete your personal logon.

The schedule is currently up-to-date, but we will be making adjustments through to the end of the conference. This is the best place to get the latest info on your own device.

Please note: SCHED is a web-based tool – not specifically an iPhone/Android app. You can use it through any browser.

Conference information, including detailed session descriptions and speaker bios, is also available through ConveyUX.com.  However, see SCHED for the latest scheduling updates.

Attending Sessions

You are welcome to attend any of the sessions over the three days.

There should be enough seats in every session. But if you care where you sit you may want to get to your sessions early. Seating for all sessions is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please help us plan for sufficient seating by filling out the non-binding session selection survey before the conference.

Workshops on Wednesday morning are included with your pass. The workshop with Jo Anne Wright requires a laptop and download in advance.

Bring a sweater! We do our best to maintain a comfortable temperature in all rooms. But large venues can be finicky and you may want to have a wrap. There is a complimentary coat check.

As with a lot of conference venues, finding electrical outlets can be tricky. We will do our best with power strips. But, you should consider coming with a full charge. This is especially true for the half-day workshops.

Food & Beverage

We try our best to keep everyone well fueled during the conference. Our selections are designed to provide many options to accommodate your needs. This includes a wide variety of dietary interests. We can introduce you to the Banquet Captain at the conference if you have any questions or concerns about the offerings. Also, feel free to bring your own food supplements if you have specific needs.

We will post the menu in this space the week before the conference.

WiFi

Thank you to Blink UX for sponsoring the conference WiFi. It is available for everyone throughout the conference area Tuesday-Thursday.

It can be helpful to our communal bandwidth if you are able to avoid downloading very large files and extended streaming.
