Welcome to


MINGLR is a software system developed to explore ways of supporting ad hoc, private videoconferences. We expect it to be useful for virtual conferences and many other kinds of online events, both business and social. An MIT working paper about the MINGLR system and its use at the ACM Collective Intelligence virtual conference (CI 2020) in June 2020 is available here. A full paper about the MINGLR system and its use at two virtual conferences was presented at ACM CHI 2021 and is available here.
