    Emerging Technology - Virtual Event & Social

    Are you interested in learning about an emerging technology?

    Are you looking for some social time with colleagues and friends?

    The SLA Southern California and San Diego Communities would like to invite YOU to join us in this free, experimental networking event!

    The event will be using a new, interactive video conferencing tool called Online Town, a browser based tool which allows users to join a virtual space in which they they can use arrow keys to move around the map. As you move around, video and audio transfers based on proximity, allowing you seemingly enter and leave conversations with other people - just like you would in a traditional, in-person room!

    The event is open to all students (regardless of membership status) and SLA members, so please share with your friends!
    Since this is an experiment, the more people the better!

    Date: Thursday, May 7
    Time: 6pm PST
