How to search and find the abstracts you want to find online

1. Launch the app on full screen mode, just like you would launch a Playtech casino online

2. Download the free Goldschmidt2012 Mobile App

The web-version of the Goldschmidt 2012 Mobile App works similarly to the Native app

There are four options you can use to get the abstracts that you are looking for

  1. If you know the specific session you are searching, select “Search” at the bottom of the browsing screen to the right and then type in the session name. You may also type in keywords (such as generic topics), abstract titles or speaker names. The search results will then display all sessions, presentations or speaker containing your typed keyword. Click on the search result to display additional information.

2. Select the program function, where you will be shown a range of options (Plenary, Oral, Poster etc). Choose your preferred session. Select the day and your preferred main session. This will be followed by sequence of sub-sessions which will have abstracts attached as a PDF document.

3. Select the program icon, choose “All Sessions at a Glance”. Everything that is included in the app will be shown on a day-by-day basis. The filter in the top right corner has each of the 23 scientific themes. Select a theme and press “Done”. Only sessions relating to this theme will be displayed.

4. Select the Speakers icon, and click on the alphabetical grouping corresponding to the 1st letter of the last name you are looking for. Should you have problems viewing the abstract, hold Ctrl and roll your mouse to sharpen your vision, or click the magnifying glass at the bottom of the app screen to zoom in on the abstract.
