Q&A

<Translation>

Q: Is there any simultaneous interpretation available?
A: Very sorry, No simultaneous interpretation is available.  We try to make the participation fee as low as possible, that is why.  However, we try to prepare the both English/Japanese slides, so all Japanese and Foreigners should be able to understand.  "no drink, no hack" includes our hope to overcome the language barrier and communicate more, with a bit of drink helps.

Q: I have a question for a speaker, but I worried he/she may not be able to understand my language.
A: We should have a couple of people who can speak both English/Japanese for a bit of help for you.  Or some from the audience can speak Chinese, Korean, Russian, Italian, etc., so ask help when you need, or ask staff nearby.


<Disclosure Policy>

Q: Can I tweet about the talks?
A: Depends on the talks.  If the speakers does not want to allow any recording including photo/video/audio etc., or does not want to allow broadcasting/twit/facebook/blog post etc., he will announce to the audience before his talk.   In addition, we try to show the signboard with "NO RECORDING PLEASE" or "NON DISCLOSURE PLEASE" at the announcement to let everybody clearly understand it.  Please pay attention to the announcement, and respect speakers.

Q: Will the presentation slides be available on the official site after the con?
A: Very sorry, most presentation slides are not gonna be available on the official site.  Some may be gonna be available, but they should be a public version, not as same as he/she talks.  Please understand we can not promise it at this moment...

Q: I forgot the ticket at home, can I enter?
