Interspeech 2014
Quality and Usability Lab (TU Berlin)
1.3.1 Varies with device
The Interspeech 2014 app, developed by the Quality and Usability Lab at TU Berlin, Germany, provides users with an up to date technical programme, access to individual abstracts and papers, a personalized schedule which can be exported to a smartphone calendar and search functionality including sessions, papers and attendees. Full paper access is restricted to conference attendees.
Additionally, a conversational agent created by the Human Language Technology Department at the A*Star Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore, is happy to answer general questions about Singapore as well as questions about the conference.

The app asks for the following permissions:
* Access to the calendar: you may export favorite sessions and paper presentations to your smartphone calendar (optional)
* Location: Notifications that are only valuable when being at the conference venue are just sent to users who are actually there
* Access to USB storage: data is stored locally in order to avoid unnecessary network requests
