Online Map

AAG2020 is a fully online event, the organising committee has chosen to promote scientific discussion and interactivity. For that reason, the organising committee has chosen Workadventure, a solution developed by The Coding Machine. The solution is similar in spirit to Multi-Player Games and allows for a playful interaction between participants.

How does it work?

The AAG2020 conference takes place on a virtual map representing famous architectural landmarks of Paris. The participants have an avatar and can navigate this map and interact with other participants or attend lectures if they go in special rooms. All participants receive their login info by e-mail.

Navigate through the map

  • To move your avatar on the map, use the arrows of your keyboard

  • To move fast, use arrows + shift

  • To zoom in/out use ctrl+scroll or ctrl +/ctrl -

  • To ease discussion among young researchers, a student corner has been set on the left of the map, close to the Eiffel Tower.
