We had a wonderful time at Macao last week. Venetian Macao was full of grandeur and it really felt like the Mecca for Computer Graphics Community. We made so many good friends, explored some amazing technologies and attended some very insightful panels and talks. Not to mention the epic electronic theater with giant screen and thumping sound. Schirkoa felt incredible on that screen.
Thank you Shuzo, Victor, CAF Team, Ginger, the Abai and Asifa representatives from India, the Student Volunteers, and all the lovely artists we ran into.
