This year, MICRO is providing symposium attendees with a social space, using the GatherTown platform, for socialization and informal gathering. This space will be open in parallel with the technical sessions, and during breaks, for the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions.

When & Where

The MICRO 2021 GatherTown space will be open for all participants for 48 hours (not only the breaks), from 15:00 Athens time (8:00 AM New York time) on Tuesday, October 19, to 14:59 Athens time (7:59 AM New York time) on Thursday, October 21. The link to the MICRO GatherTown space will be provided to registered participants through Whova.


Select your avatar and stroll around the halls and rooms of the space. You can interact with other guests by approaching them, which will open up a video chat automatically. Private conversation areas are available throughout the space. GatherTown is best experienced by turning on your camera and microphone.

In most photos you see around, press the "x" key and you will be directed to a web site or the full photo. Some web sites don't permit embedding, so you may need to open them in a separate browser window.


There are multiple halls, areas, and rooms where you can meet friends and colleagues. Most rooms are named so that you can identify them easily and meet people there. Some areas of interest:

  • Monuments, museums, and places of interest in the Main Hall, the Garden, and the Beach
  • The Sponsors Room, with links to web sites of our symposium sponsors
  • The CARES Room, where you can meet members of the SIGMICRO/SIGARCH CARES Committee
  • The CASA Room, where you can meet members of the Computer Architecture Student Association
  • The Calls and Flyers Room, with CFPs and websites of journals and other conferences
  • The Session Chairs and Speakers Meeting Room
  • The Islands, a gallery of photos of the Greek islands
  • The Music Room, with links to YouTube videos of Greek music
