The Int'l CAWSES-II Symposium took place in Nagoya last year November. It was really well done. Kudos to the conveners, the entire LOC, and Nagoya University for a fantastic job. I participated in this symposium and found it extremely informative, rewarding, and satisfying; I took lots of photos -- I attach a subset of these photos. (Not everyone is identified as I lack the time to investigate thoroughly -- sorry.)
At the time pre-registration was closed, the numbers were these:
|Registrations by foreigners||139 persons.|
|Registrations by Japanese||159 persons.|
|(The actual number of participants is higher
because some people registered later.)
Anyway, CAWSES-II has ended, and VarSITI starts on 13 Jan 2014 ... just around the corner.
