Gather Town Instructions
The preferred way of attending the conference is our virtual conference center on the Gather platform.
Everything is accessible from inside gather.town. In particular, you can walk into sessions by entering one of the main track rooms, "Track A" and "Track B", just like you usually would. You will then be able to open the respective Zoom meeting by pressing "X" and following the instructions. The same is true for all other events, like workshops or tutorials. The web page accompanies this with overview information as well as details on specific events.
Workshops, Tutorials, and certain other events also have separate rooms in the gather.town space. Here is an assignment from event to room name:
|Gather Room||Workshop/Tutorial||Other Events|
|Marina Bay Sands||PRL, XAIP, HSDIP, RDDPS||Doctoral Consortium, Puzzle Game Team Challenge, Open Discussion|
|Gardens by the Bay||HPlan, SPARK, FinPlan, IntEx|
|Singapore Flyer||DAPSPAC, KEPS, PlanRob|
