Ruhr-Universität Bochum

For the Cluster of Excellence “Cyber Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries” (CASA), con gressa reached into its toolbox and, together with the Ruhr University Bochum, created a novel virtual event environment with Gathertown.

The two-day retreat workshop on the topic of IT security was held entirely in virtual spaces we created specifically for this purpose (lecture room, sports hall, park, etc.). As with other online formats, participants were invited to the event via a link. However, participation in Gathertown took place as an avatar, a virtual proxy with whom one could move through the virtual world at will. Bilateral discussions, interactive group work as well as classic lectures via video conferencing were possible. Of course, we also integrated a secret location on the map made for the more curious attendees willing to explore. 

con gressa took over the design and technical configuration of the rooms and was also responsible for live support for participants.
