Promotion of the AthenaPlus project, raising interest in new tools being created and tested during its implementation was very important part of the conference. As a result, participants were introduced with activities of the AthenaPlus, its first results and new tools being tested. The main focus was put on MOVIO tool for staging virtual online exhibitions. LAM’s pilot exhibition “Architecture and Visual Arts at the Old University of Vilnius” served as an example of MOVIO functionalities. Last but not least, participants were invited to become involved in AthenaPlus activities, especially in the testing or providing professional feedback for further development of new tools.
