Twenty researchers from all over the world participated in the virtual poster session of the 5th Workshop on Massive Multiuser Virtual Environments (MMVE 2012). The workshop was held in Munich, Germany, on October 9. The virtual session was hosted by the Center for Computer Games and Virtual Worlds using an OpenSimulator server featuring Vivox for voice and with content from the Universal Campus.
Seven posters were on display, with three of them being presented live in the virtual world. The group also engaged in an open-ended conversation about the future of the workshop and the research community around massive multiuser virtual environments.
The virtual poster session was considered a success, and plans are being made to continue these virtual meetings throughout the year. Stay tuned!
