01-Jul-2020: Let’s Design our Future — a planning meeting of the JVWR community

A Few COVID-19 facts: Oil was selling at a negative price; ZOOM is valued at $50 billion — worth more than the largest 7 airlines combined, and the USA is indeed “great again” at the number of fatalities (over 100K)!

In light of the COVID-19 Black Swan, communities around the world are starting to design their role and future. The JVWR 2000-person strong community is doing the same. Our role was always to facilitate the exchange of novel ideas in the areas of virtual worlds research. The current situation behooves us to act.

On July 1st, we will be gathering over Zoom (webinar format) to strategize our role and future as a community, with an emphasis on our response to COVID-19. The meeting will commence with a presentation by Professor Yesha Sivan on the Three New Normals (3NN) model. We invite you to register to the event.
