I am certainly interested. I would not be able to attend on the 6th July, but may be fine with other dates. I may be able to talk about the history of Simutrans (programming and pak64.japan) with a personal perspective, even in Japanese (although not on technical programming terms, this I can do in English only).

I've told that to JHSDF. It would be very helpful for us if you talk in Japanese, because unfortunately most of participants cannot comprehend English and there are difficulties in the simultaneous interpretation between English and Japanese.

5th Japan Simutrans Conference were held as it was planned on July 27th and we had a great time. Conference videos were uploaded here. Sorry for being late to notify the video link.

Although we uploaded the conference videos on YouTube, almost none of them have English translation. It was revealed that making a caption for the videos needs a huge effort and it was pretty discouraging. Unfortunately, automatic dictation feature of YouTube is not good for Japanese and automatic Japanese - English translation still has insufficient quality for casual Japanese expressions.

Once we considered to make a conference proceedings in English but it requires additional work for presenters and we couldn't. Tackling Japanese - English language barrier is still a big challenge and we will continue making an effort to share our discussions in the conference with the members of this forum. Maybe I can add one-sentence English descriptions for each presentation.

Prissi, thank you for coming our conference. We were very happy to hear your presentation about the history of the simutrans international community and have a wonderful talk after the presentations. We will be so pleased if you can join our Japanese simutrans conference again.

It is nice to hear that you had a good time at the Japan Simutrans Conference! A real bummer I cannot understand any Japanese except some single words or terms, although I can understand your reluctance to translate the talks and perhaps it would be a bit boring to follow the talks with captions. Perhaps it would be more reasonable to write a (short) summarized report of the topics discussed at the conference? Simutrans Community is very lucky that Prissi can give talks in Japanese, as it seems to me to be a rather active user group there in Japan, too.

It was my first presentation in Japanese ever. If there is interest, I can make an English version of the slides (which I made as a draft first for myself).

I would definitely be interested in the English slides. I saw your animation of the code history and it was very interesting.
