an example

TMA2020, which i am attending as i type, is a more classic format,
mixing zoom and slack, and is time skewed somewhat to try to have a
timezone footprint which is not too onerous for asia and the americas.
but they tried to innovate in the discussions, per-paper slack channels,
interactive q&a, etc.

maybe the hardest part is what our community refers to as 'the hallway.'
i am looking for communities trying to innovate in this space.  imiho,
this is really important.  i can read your paper/draft/...  and zoom +q
interaction is about as good as the mic line.  but hanging out,
discussing, gossiping, ...  is more important to us funny monkeys the
tools seem to support.
