In addition to the Twitter-based virtual poster session, some of the posters will be selected to be discussed in a virtual reality room. VR is a new experiment for POM, and will be tested only on a selection of posters.
The POM June Meeting will feature three small-scale poster sessions in virtual reality (VR), using Mozilla Hubs. Three virtual rooms will be set up with three posters each, selected by the Poster Committee. Each room will allow up to 15 people, who can then mingle with each other and the poster presenters, just like in a physical conference.
If you would like to try Hubs during POM, we strongly encourage you to read our instructions here below and try out the environment with some friends and colleagues in advance, to make sure everything goes smoothly at the actual event.
We thanks Ariel Levenson for introducing us to the Mozilla Hubs platform.
