Most of presentations are mainly in Humanities in this conference, especially European researchers did not mention researches in Natural science little bit unfortunately, but these 5 nights and 6 days were very productive.

Although the detail is unconfirmed, participants planned collaborative research projects. I'm looking forward to joining in them.
