GatherTown Information and Guidance

The virtual conference site on GatherTown will open May 1 through June 1 and can be accessed here. Starting June 1, there will be a 10 person cap on individuals in GatherTown, so if you cannot access the website, please try again later. Only registered conference attendees will be able to access the virtual conference space using the email listed in their registration. GatherTown works best on Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. Unlike previous virtual conferences, GatherTown can now be used on mobile devices (works with all browsers except for Chrome on iPhone). However, this is "still a work in progress" according to the developers and has limited functionality. For all workshops and official AMMP functions, your first and last name as listed on your registration is required for your avatar and in Zoom in accordance with the Code of Conduct_2024.pdf. For more information on how to use GatherTown, please click on the following link: GatherTown Guidance Doc.pdf.
