- The virtual participants can choose to join either the scientific programme or the virtual networking space at any moment during the conference. However, there are specific moments where all the participants are invited to network: the coffee breaks, lunch breaks and the virtual welcome reception on Thursday the 25th of August 2022 from 19:30 to 20:00 (GMT+2).
- The virtual networking space is built in Gather Town. Gather Town is a video-calling space that allows multiple people to hold separate conversations in parallel, walking in and out of those conversations just as easily as they walk through the virtual spaces of the conference.
- The virtual networking conference space comprises a hall, two gardens, a lobby with table games and a disco. There are many private networking spaces to sit and chat with your colleagues. Otherwise, you can walk around with your avatar and network with the people you meet.
- Indications to access the networking space can be found here.
