The event, organised by the Nimbus Research Centre, MTU, put together a 50+ presenter pack, 1100+ attendees, new bespoke Nimbus developed conference platform, 30 presentations, 20+ workshops, 3D printers give away, recruitment stands, 3 main stages (Main, Research, Asia), across multiple times zones and more - all on its first ever online event. As much of the discussion was heavily influenced by the current pandemic, It was raised at the Asia stand that it was stated “70% of all medical pandemic queries relate to Mental Health and Well Being” Dr Stanley Li - an opportune occasion for ChatPal to have a presence. Dr Indika Dhanapala, representing the INTERREG NPA ChatPal consortium delivered a presentation titled ChatPal - Your Positive Psychology Chatbot on the Research Stage (slides attached). In addition, ChatPal also showcased their achievements from their stand in the virtual exhibition hall (illustrations below). Hosted and developed by the Nimbus Research Centre, Cork IOT, the platform included a virtual exhibition hall bringing two floors of exhibitor space. Streamlined all area access registration through beyondiot.ie included Main Research and Asia Stage access throughout the event, with a series of informative ChatPal workshops running simultaneously. ChatPal’s presence at this important gathering offered all the usual event takeaways, such as vital contacts, exhibition backdrop material, video and downloadable information. Perhaps, like ChatPal, this virtual platform will pave the way for future events.
