The OpenSimulator Community Conference is one of the longest running virtual conference series, having started in 2013 and run annually since. The OpenSimulator community and Avacon Inc. come together to run the event on the OpenSimulator Community Conference (OpenSimCC – http://cc.opensimulator.org:8005) grid.
The main keynote presentations area uses the adjacent corners of 4 sims to provide capacity for up to around 400 attendees.
