For CEDEC2023

As a response to the prolonged impact of COVID-19, CEDEC has moved events online starting from 2020. Although holding the event online has led to various advantages, such as making it easier for participants to join from distant locations, it has also reduced opportunities for technical exchange, which is one of the purposes of CEDEC.

In an effort to revive this element of technical exchange that CEDEC has been known for, “Resurrection in a New World.” has been chosen as the theme for CEDEC2023.

Given the current situation with COVID-19, it is still difficult to hold CEDEC on-site as before. For CEDEC2023, the base format will be an online event that leverages the know-how gained from last year's event, but it will also include a limited number of measures to encourage participation in on-site audits and on-site technical exchange. At the same time, we will work on experimental measures to make CEDEC an even better event from next year onward, and explore new event formats for CEDEC as well.

There was rapid development in the field of artificial intelligence in 2022, and I hope that there will be renewed chances for lively discussions about tech information at CEDEC at well. We hope you'll join us.
