Science Online London conference live in Second Life

Joanna Scott informed us about a great event organized by Nature. I wanted to attend last year’s and this year’s Science Online London conference (22, August), but I will have state exam two days after that so next year is the next target for me. But, through Second Life, you can attend it virtually.

Science Online London is a one-day conference held at the Royal Institution on London covering all aspects of online science. The conference is co-hosted by Nature Network, Mendeley and the RI.

BUT if you haven’t signed up or can’t travel, fear not – for the first time, it will also be live video streamed in Second Life!

Attendance will cost the princely sum of 10 GBP/15 USD to cover costs and will give virtual attendees access to the island for the whole day as well as an opportunity to ask the speakers questions – we will have a member of staff in the audience to get your questions to the speaker just like the RL attendees.
