This is not a paper

This is the world’s first ever academic paper which is not a paper. Presented at the world’s leading conference on Human-Computer Interaction, this work plays with the very concept of what a research paper actually is.

You can actually walk ‘in’ to this paper. Each room is a section where you can read the text, but you can also actually bump into other conference delegates there.

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused us to reassess many things in life, this work does the same, it’s about collapsing barriers between video chat, research conferences, and publication traditions.
