The international symposiums can be arranged as an online event
in the grid of Second Life
To realize this, every participant needs a minimum of soft- and hardware requirements on his home computer equipment.
Download and installation of the free Second Life-Software and some days preparation in the newcomer area to know the most important functions like building an avatar, moving around, teleporting, using the sound equipment etc. Second life has an enormous educational potential and is insofar a very interesting platform to become familiar with. For a one-hour-discussion symposium generally the time differences have to be considered too.
For participants using a laptop, please look at the requirements given by LindenLab (developer of Second Life): http://secondlife.com/corporate/sysreqs.php.
