Accessing AvaCon Grid
Avacon Grid is based on the virtual reality platform called OpenSimulator. It is free to access and is accessible via the hypergrid.
If you have an avatar on another OpenSimulator grid that is connected to the hypergrid, please see our hypergrid page for more information on how to access Avacon Grid. You do not need an Avacon avatar to access the conference venue if you are already set-up on another, hypergrid enabled, grid.
