The Serious Virtual Worlds '07 conference starts today in Coventry with an academic track culminating in the launch of the Coventry University island at 5.00pm this evening (UK time).
Presentations from the conference are currently being streamed into the Serious Games Institute (SGI) building on the island.
Luckily permissions in the SGI building are open enough that I could build my own seat while I was listening! :-)
I couldn't find an agreed tag for this conference so I'm using 'svw07'.
