The upcoming International Pig Veterinary Congress in Jeju in South Korea offers a new mobile app to make life of all delegates simple and overseeable.
A Mobile Web app is launched to provide notices, the scientific programme, author information, social programmes, poster information and local information about Jeju island.
The app can be accessed by scanning the QR code on the left or by going to m.ipvs2012.kr.
