If you can’t come, don’t worry, you can still use the app to keep in touch with events at the conference. The topic sessions will not be broadcast live, but you can watch the stream of conference tweets (#smacc2013 for the conference. Individual sessions will also have their own additional hashtag.), take part in live polling for sessions that are streamed and watch Google Hangouts on the YouTube SMACC channel. Links to download the SMACC App will be posted on the SMACC website and affiliated sites (ICN, LITFL, PHARM and others) later next week.
We want this conference to be more than just a specific location or speaker. Whether you are sitting in the audience, giving a presentation or dialling in from the other side of the world, we want you to get involved. Send in tweets, ask questions, watch interviews. This conference is for everyone, everywhere.
After the conference, keep in touch with the ICN, LITFL and PHARM sites, as well as EM Crit, St Emlyn’s and Free Emergency Talks as the individual sessions will be released in podcast format for your educational pleasure.
