To improve the virtual conference experience we are going to use a conference app, MeetAppGO. It's possible to use the app both on your computer and on your phone/tablet. The app is very easy to use. All the relevant links will be provided in the NNRME2021 conference app. You will receive all the information you need in an e-mail before the event starts.
