Conference venues
problemAllow audience to browse multiple threads of interest in a physical conference?
solutionThere are several things to consider including
  1. rooms in close proximity.
  2. entrances at rear for unobstrusive entry/exit
  3. current talk summary at entrance
  4. do not assume that everyone owns a smart phone with internet access

What problem does this solve?[edit]

At physical conferences with multiple sessions in progress, it helps for many to browse the talks to make decisions on further engagement.

What is the solution?[edit]

In many conference halls, the design allows for people to enter and exit unobstrusively from the rear of the room. In places where such a design is lacking, thought must be given to "browsers".

General considerations[edit]

When to use[edit]

When organizing conferences.
