After the troubles with the publisher, CD-ROM version of DiGRA2007 proceedings had arrived during the conference. We should deliver CD-ROMs to the participants who returned early, however, the negotiation is delayed and shipping is not started yet.

We are also preparing the digital library version of DiGRA2007 proceedings, http://www.digra.org/dl/ . If may take time to upload each papers and input keywords manually.

Excursion Tour is finished.

September 29, 2007

Last night, we have a finale of DiGRA2007. There are also the banquet at Hotel Metropolitan Edmont Tokyo.

Just after the DiGRA2007 conference, today we went to the excursion tour. About 30 people had registered to this tour, however, only 14 people came. Maybe the other people slept too late after singing Karaoke at last night (we could not join it as we should bring several materials back from the banquet), or, watching Rugby World Cup 🙂 .

We went to the royal palace, Asakusa, and Akihabara. Though we cannot charter the professonal guide at Akihabara, the committee members and graduate students introduced the deep information of updated Akihabara.

All events are finished. Thanks for all attendees, presentors, reviewers, chairs, mentors, volunteers, student assistants, and professonal workers.

In the next week, we will start the follow-up service including CD-ROM proceedings issue.
