More About the Platform

IOA is excited to introduce a new interactive virtual experience into #IOA2022. It's time to bring out our inner child and have some fun using Gather.Town!

Gather.Town is a web-based video calling experience and virtual space for people to interact. This virtual space combines video-calling with a 2D map that lets you walk around and talk to the other people right next to you, as well as view videos and documents.  This virtual space will be used for #IOA2022 Mentoring events and networking.
