03. Cultural Performance: Digital Transformation - Md. Sajidul Islam
Cyber Performance: a concept to perform, unify and broadcast geographically dispersed cultural events in real-time was an initiative undertaken under the project with a view to transforming real-life cultural performance into digital format and then broadcast to the physically scattered audience. My presentation will feature the objectives of the just completed project, the activities conducted under this project, challenges which were faced, mitigatory steps that were taken, the project outcome in terms of fulfillment of objectives, and last but not the least, how to proceed from here on as we are planning to move on stepping into the next phase. It was well understood from the outcome of the previous phase that cyber performance is a continuous process and there are lot of avenues where we need improvement as quality of service is of prime importance for commercial implementation of such venture. There is no doubt in speculating that as time progresses the digital performance will definitely improve but at the same time the requirements will be more stringent. Hence, we should muster all our efforts and all available technology to overcome all obstacles that stand on our way to achieve our goals. Hopefully, the next phase of Cyber Performance will lead us to attainment of those goals.

04. Tech-Fusion Asi@Connect Project and Five-Country Collaboration of dQ19 (dancingQ19): Recap and the What Next? - Faridah Mohd Noor and Boncheol Goo
We begin with an overview of the project. This Tech-Culture Fusion Program was supported by Asi@Connect. The country partners and their Nrens are Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Vietnam and Malaysia. BC Goo of Next Inc., Korea, led the team to provide each member team with the hands-on sessions that were held in several APAN Meetings including in Hanoi, Vietnam. A symposium "Cultural Transformation in Digital Ecosystem" was held in June 2018 Dakha, Bangladesh, which was a workshop cum sharing session with guest speakers from Konilab.
