In this paper, we describe the development of a mobile phone app for supporting participants and organizers of Interspeech conferences. Based on a survey amongst future organizers and attendees, we identified the most relevant functionalities and implemented an initial set of them on two popular platforms, iOS and Android. The app is meant as an open tool to be handled under the auspices of ISCA, and can be extended with speech and language functionalities in the future. This way, we hope to turn it into a community platform which can be used for experimenting with new speech technologies on site. A first version of this app will be presented at Interspeech 2013.
