CEDEC2022 Steering Committee Chairman: Yasuyuki Saito
Due to frequently-emerging mutant variants of COVID-19, the end to the pandemic seems to be nowhere in sight.
In addition, during this prolonged pandemic, conventional knowledge and understanding have changed; therefore, even after it comes to an end, many things will not return to the way they were before.
COVID-19 is truly a game changer that has transformed the way the world works.
But rather than getting negatively impacted, let's take things into our own hands and change the game itself - that is, this world's game.
With this in mind, "Change the Games" has been chosen as the theme for CEDEC2022.
One of the main roles of CEDEC is to provide a community, and in order to share the value that can only be obtained through face-to-face communication, we considered holding the event in a hybrid format with on-site participants. However, in light of the impact of the more contagious mutant strains, we will be holding CEDEC2022 online this year.
Although we are disappointed that we have not been able to interact with you in a local setting for a long time, we're committed to making this the best online conference that can only happen right now, levelling up with knowledge gained from holding the conference online during the past two years.
Let's refuse to get shaken up by the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, and instead bring lots of excitement to this year!
We greatly appreciate your continued support!
