Visit BioEM Town

BioEM Town is an interactive virtual space set up in Gather Town. BioEM Town is consisted of a Town Square, an auditorium and three 25-seating chat rooms (Spurs, Epon and Lowicryl). Before entering BioEM Town, participants will choose an avatar to represent him/herself and define an interacting distance. Live interactions can be initiated when avatars are in the interacting zone defined by the interacting distance or in a designated “private space”. Participants will be able to stroll through the Town Hall, visit presentation and vendor exhibit booths in the Town Square, and chat with other participants. Participants are strongly recommended to try out the video and audio setting in BioEM Town before the start of the event. Please download BioEMTown Visitor’s Guide here.
