Due to the uncertainties and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the iWoRID conference will be held in a fully digital venue. In order to enable the broad range of desired possibilities in a digital conference, we have adopted two platforms:
- For the lectures, Zoom will be used. Upon registration, you have to enter the email address which is coupled to your Zoom account. This can be a full Zoom account, but also just a free account.
- For the interactive part, we will use the gather.town platform. Despite its unconventional appearance, we are convinced that this platform offers a low-threshold way of discussing with fellow participants, exhibitors and poster presenters, effectively approximating an on-site conference as much as possible. A small preview on how this platform works can be found on https://gather.town/app/NZfSVdxt4K14xATM/iworid-concept . Obviously, the virtual venue will be much bigger than this preview, but is still under construction.
