Macao is described by the IJCAI organization as “the single most consistent example of cultural interchange between Europe and Asia; the official languages are Chinese and Portuguese. Having developed into a bustling city with a worldwide reputation in entertainment, Macao is also at the heart of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, which promotes its fast development in IT education, research, and industry in recent years”.
The venue of the conference (Venetian Macao Hotel Resort) can easily be reached through its direct connection to Hong Kong International Airport and Shenzhen International Airport. The newly opened "longest bridge in the world" creates yet another good (and faster) connection between Hong Kong and Macao. The conference venues are a 5-minute drive away from Macao International Airport, which is located in the city center.
