This was the first Great People gathering. The 10 of us met in 渋谷 (Shibuya), one of the young areas of 東京 (Tokyo), then enjoyed an excellent Asian dinner at the local Elephant Café. We were a good mix of French, German, Chinese, Thai, and Japanese people. Five of us were researchers (computer science, statistics), one was in the business, three were still students, and if no mistake the last one was job hunting. The discussions were lively and enjoyable.
