I believe many people share the same feeling, that the 62.WCCC was absolutely wonderfully organized in Vilnius! Thanks a lot to Lithuanian team and especially to Vilimantas and Vidmantas Satkus!
There’re some post on the official website, I tried to make during the congress. The final page for the 43.WCSC is just finished. The 4.YCCC was a great work to boast: Results (PDF) | Photo gallery
