Overwhelming hospitality and professional conference support by a merry crowd of enthusiastic students gently supervised by Wei-chen Chuang and Tian-Tsai¬†Chiang (TJ), not to mention the rich cultural and culinary excursions – and of course Lyn and Eve and Jim, my “cultural bodyguard” – a BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!
