At its evening reception, Calista Redmond, RISC-V Foundation CEO, and Noriaki Fukuyasu, Linux Foundation Japan Country Manager spoke about 2020 onward. Redmond stated in 2020 we can contemplate having twice as large an event. This is an ambitious goal but maybe possible as Japanese corporates are starting to engage in RISC-V as was evidenced by its trade show and presentations.
