Navigating the Lida Orzeck '68 SRI Poster Session
The 2021 SRI poster session is being held in a virtual conference area on Gather.Town. It works just like an in-person poster session: posters will be spread out around rooms with presenters standing by them. Each discipline has a room or two; their doors are labeled as such. When you enter the room, you can walk over to a poster and view it in full size by pressing ‘x'. The poster presenter and other guests will automatically appear on your screen to tell you about their work and answer questions. When you are done, you can walk to a different poster or choose to leave the room. If you are close to another user, their video will automatically come into view for you.
Tips for Attending
You must use a PC or Mac (not a phone)
Use your full, real name for your avatar
Turn on your microphone and your camera (if possible)
There is a limit of 500 users in the room at any time.
If you cannot log in, the room may be full so please try again in a few minutes.
Navigate using the arrow keys on your keyboard
Change your avatar by clicking the "change character" button on the left side of the toolbar at the bottom of your screen.
To view a poster, move your avatar to the colored dots underneath it and press the X key
Keep in mind that, just like in a real conference room, people who stand near you can potentially overhear your conversation!
Looking for someone special? You can see a list of each student and their poster number by the door of each room (marked “info”).
