About networking tool: SpatialChat

This tool simulates the space of a room, where people can move and join discussions in small or large groups, as well as have one-on-one conversations.

You will enter the SpatialChat environment in the Reception room. Please move to the other rooms in order to meet with other participants and discuss your preferred topics.

  • Preferably use a Chrome browser to join the Networking Session.
  • Once in the virtual space, each person is represented by a circle where his/her face will show via the computer camera.
  • You will enter in the reception room, from here please move to one of the other 4 rooms: Ascona, Speakers’ Room, Luzern or Verzasca Valley (you will find this option on the side of your screen).
  • If you do not see the entire virtual room, please zoom out.
  • You can move in the virtual space by dragging your circle around the room.
  • You can see where other people are located in the virtual space: when your circle is close to them, you can hear them well; as you move away from them, their voice becomes quieter.
We hope you have a fun experience. We are using SpatialChat for the first time with such a large number of participants and hope that everything will go smoothly. You are invited to report any potential issue you may encounter during the experience to: This will help us evaluate the tool and improve our offer as we plan future meetings.
