ACE disgrace

Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology (known as ACE) is an annual conference that has been hijacked by Adrian Cheok and David Levy. After a series of failures, outbursts and blunders by Adrian Cheok, most of the original steering committee stepped down in mid 2018.

Cheok then announced that Stephen Bannon would be the keynote speaker at the ACE 2018 conference. Steve Bannon served as White House Chief Strategist in the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump during the first seven months of Trump's term. Bannon's appointment caused massive outrage among academia and led to a boycott of the event, and the creation of the #BoycottACE hashtag on Twitter.
