While a conventional audio call is fine for presentations, it is somewhat limited in emulating the scientific and social exchange at an in-person conference. Therefore, we chose Gather.Town as a virtual, game-like supplement. The experience is similar to an oldschool video game: You move on a virtual map of Kiel with various locations for conference (and leisure) activities. You are able to interact with each other via audio/video call or chat. There are interactive elements on the map e.g. to participate in Zoom calls for the talk sessions. We provide tutorials on the essential topics to give you an idea on how to use the tool.
