We tried something new! Neutrino 2020 conference registrants had access to a virtual reality platform that gave poster presenters an opportunity to share their work and conference participants a chance to interact. The virtual reality platform was available for the duration of the conference. Participants had a chance to get immersed in a virtual poster session where they were able to see the posters and interact live with poster presenters during dedicated poster sessions (dates and times of poster sessions indicated on the conference agenda). Participants also had the chance to explore some virtual sight-seeing of Fermilab and Chicago as well as visit our social rooms to get together with colleagues.
During the conference, 3,409 conference attendees visited the virtual reality platform, including the 532 early career scientists who presented posters. Virtual reality platform received overwhelmingly positive feedback on social media social media.
