We will have a VR/AR experience booth at the meeting in the second part of the event.
Visitors can wear VR goggles to view the 'Drawing on Space' created in the hall of the Kyoto Art Centre, which will be the venue for the event.
The Kyoto Art Centre was originally built in 1869 as the Meirin Elementary School, and the hall still retains traces of its former days.
