About Virtual World Cafés

One virtual platform: Virtual World Cafés supported by Mural

A Virtual World Café (VWC) is an online event that fosters knowledge sharing and creates opportunities for actions. VWC participants are distributed across several breakout sessions, with participants switching sessions periodically and getting introduced to the previous discussion at their new session by a session lead.

Mural is a browser-based interface supporting virtual discussions.

Our Virtual World Cafés will engage both the science and engineering communities to share knowledge and define new collaboration opportunities through structured discussions hosted on Mural.

Three Virtual World Cafés for three Cohorts

Each Virtual World Café discusses current state of the practice and future roadmaps with the targeted cohort.
