When you click on the Paper Index link, you will see a list of sessions in order of presentation time and location. Clicking on the button next to a session name will add all of the papers in that session to your custom schedule. Clicking on a session title will display a list of all of the papers in the selected session.
When viewing the list of papers in a session, clicking on the button will add a paper to your custom schedule. If a paper is already listed in your custom schedule, then clicking on the button will remove the paper from your custom schedule. Clicking on a paper title will display full details about the selected paper.
When viewing the details of a paper, clicking on the "Add this paper to my schedule" button will add that paper to your custom schedule. If the paper is already listed in your custom schedule, then clicking on the "Remove this paper from my schedule" will remove that paper from your custom schedule.
You may search for accepted APS/URSI 2017 papers by Paper Number (as defined when the paper was submitted online), Author(s), Title, Abstract, Topic, and Session Presentation Time. Multiple search terms may be used together to narrow the search as desired. Multiple items entered for a single search term (other than Paper Number, Topic, and Session Time) should be seperated by a space. You may choose whether all multiple search terms will be required or if any search term would produce the desired results. This selection is made from the pull-down menu next to the search field.
If the search returns only one match, then full details will be displayed for that match. If more than one match is returned, then all of the matching records will be listed with checkboxes beside each result. To add papers from a search which has multiple matches, select the checkbox(es) next to the paper(s) you wish to add to your custom schedule, then click the "Add selected papers" button. If the search returns more than one match, clicking on the "View" button next to a match will display the full details for the selected paper.
If a search returns more than 30 matches, you will be given the opportunity to go back to the search fields page to refine your search terms, or you may choose to display all matched records. Note that searches which result in many matches may take a long time to display.
