This article reports on the experience of conducting the program committee (PC) meeting for the IEEE VR 2009 conference in Second Life. More than 50 PC members from around the globe met virtually over a two-day period to decide which papers to accept for presentation at the conference. Survey responses from 42 of the PC members indicate generally positive feelings toward this meeting format, although several alterations will help improve interaction between attendees in future meetings.
