The AANS changed the landscape of medical meetings during the 2010 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia. To support our first meeting conducted via the iPod touch®, the AANS created a variety of content within a mobile meeting application, complete with program guides, floor maps, exhibitor listings and social venues. Building on the success and positive feedback over the past two years, the AANS has expanded its mobile initiatives further by developing a more robust mobile membership app with year-round applicability. We have also made a variety of multimedia content available free on iTunes U and YouTube.
AANS Mobile Membership App
