Virtual Space

The workshop will take place on the Gather.town platform. This platform provides a 2d layout in which participants can navigate an avatar using the arrow keys. When a group of avatars are in close proximity, a video conference is started. Tables and chairs provide private video conferencing space. Talks will take place on the platform itself using Gather's native screen sharing functionality. Please note that you will need to register to obtain the login credentials.

The first time that you log in, you will need to authenticate with the Gather system. We recommend logging in early to avoid delays with authentication!
