Welcome to INS Boston!

Boston Meeting Content & Downloads

INS Boston Meeting App (click to download)

Click the auto-detect link above to download the INS Boston 2016 Meeting App; your operating system will be detected and you'll be taken to either the html5 version of the app (for computers), Google Play (for android phones), or the App Store (for Apple products).

Even though the meeting has ended, the app never stops providing interesting content! INS content includes detailed information on every invited speaker, detailed profiles on all sponsors and exhibitors, within-app access to the program book and complete schedule, and–for the first time–PDF handouts for each plenary session at the meeting (exclusively available in the app).

Many presenters accepted the challenge to upload handouts for their individual presentations in Boston, and many more uploaded their personal profiles and interests. The app's Activity Feed and Photo Gallery were also popular features–check them out to see what other attendees uploaded, or share something of your own! Download the app today and start exploring.

Boston Conference Recordings (click here to purchase)

INS works with an outside vendor to record each session at the Annual Meeting. You may purchase recordings for the entire meeting, or just for individual presentations (most sessions are available, except for those excluded by the speakers). Recordings include audio of the speaker and video capture of their ongoing slide presentation. In most cases, the purchased media (either CD or USB) also contains a PDF of the session's PowerPoint, but this is not guaranteed to be available for each session. For more information, or to purchase recordings from past INS meetings, click the link above or visit
