Hours at a Glance


Meeting Website
The Meeting website has additional information and links for transportation from the airport, dining options, parking at other locations, and more.

Mobile APP

The Meetings@APS mobile app is available for Android and iOS devices to help you manage your schedule and look up sessions. It will also keep you updated on the latest information regarding the Meeting. The app and virtual platform are connected. So your schedule will sync, and you can reach out to attendees who are attending in person or virtually.

Because of the size of the app, we recommend downloading it over a reliable WiFi connection before coming to the Meeting. The app may request permission to access other apps on your phone, such as calendar, camera, storage, and notifications.

In addition to the Technical Program on the web, you can download a PDF version that includes a session grid and a Schedule at a Glance. This version will be available on-site.

Virtual Platform

The virtual meeting platform will be available for all attendees. When you log in with your APS credentials, you can browse the scientific program, create a personal schedule, network with other attendees, view ePosters, and watch on-demand videos. (Please note that DFD is not live-streaming sessions from the Meeting in Indianapolis.) Google Chrome is the recommended web browser to access the platform.  A personalized link will be sent to registrants prior to the meeting.

Please note: Not all speakers consent to be recorded or uploaded a video of their presentation, which may result in unavailable presentations.

The virtual platform will be available to attendees until December 31, 2022.

Airport Transportation
The distance from the Indianapolis Airport to the Convention Center is approximately 12.5 miles.

  • Taxis, Lyft, Uber, and buses all provide service from the airport.


There are several places to eat in and around the ICC.

  • Restaurants around the Hotel will be very busy Saturday night due to Colt’s game on Sunday afternoon. We suggest you make a reservation as soon as possible for dinner that night, especially if you have a large group.
  • You should also allow extra time on Sunday morning for breakfast.


Despite its significant parking spaces, finding Indiana Convention Center parking can be challenging, especially the night before and the day of a Colts’ game (there is one on Sunday, 1:00 pm). Consider booking parking in advance by clicking on “Parking” above. Look for the link to “Arrive.”
