Visit BioEM Town

BioEM Town is an interactive virtual space set up in Gather Town. BioEM Town is consisted of a Town Square and a Town Hall. Upon 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 and Town Square, visit vendor exhibit booths and flash talk presentations and chat with other participants. Participants will be able to try out the video and audio setting in BioEM Town before the start of the event. More guideline will be available soon.
