PAST EVENT

Wow! What A Week! Three great conferences on three continents, now all virtual! (See links below to participate):

  • 2020 ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (Portugal)
  • 2020 Conference on 3D Web Technology (Korea)
  • 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (Brazil)

Please join Health Systems Chat in Social VR regulars and NOOBs in the ultimate exercise in conference intersectionality! As usual, our emphasis is on scintillating conversation in extraordinary surroundings. Via the magic of VR, we will meet floating above Cascais, Portugal, next to a 15th-century Portuguese caravel ship, the Seoul Memorial Statue (Seoul, Korea), and that gigantic (125 foot!) art deco statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. So bring your thinking caps, gifts of gab, and ability to experience awe at one’s extraordinary surroundings to the very bestest intellectual salon anywhere in social virtual reality!
