μTAS 2002 was the first conference to be held in the Asian region. Actually some steering committee members had been concerned about the extent of Asian μTAS activities and possible low numbers of participants.
Fortunately more than 460 abstracts, about 37% from Asia, were submitted. We accepted 323 abstracts as 66 oral and 257 poster presentations (70% acceptance rate). The final participant number was 750 which were many more than we had expected.
