I attended the WIPOS in December 2022. The WIPOS was an excellent conference that made up for the fact that many conferences were held online due to COVID-19,
making it difficult to connect with people. I was greatly inspired by the profound and sophisticated lecture by the Nobel laureate and challenging talks by young Rising Star researchers. I also deepened personal exchanges through chats over meals and coffee breaks. (I think the mild climate of Hawaii also positively affected the interactions among researchers.) It was a great experience for me, and I would recommend many researchers to participate in the WIPOS.
