    This is a great opportunity for people in the Asia-Pacific region to get one-stop-shop access to all the major players in hardware, software and applications, and to see and hear about what products are available and in development. There is plenty of time to organise meetings with specific suppliers during the 2 days. And the guest speaker talks give a great opportunity to see what other people are currently doing and also to network and discuss projects and possible collaborations.

    The meeting is organised and run extremely well and was good value.
    I went last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, and am going again this year.
