presentations of refereed papers that have been selected by the

collaboration and exchange of knowledge between our local communities.
We especially invite joint contributions from colleagues coming from

About Guangzhou

Guangzhou (also romanized as: Canton) is the capital and largest city of
Guangdong province in South China. Located on the Pearl River, about 120
km (75 mi) north-northwest of Hong Kong and north-northeast of Macau,
Guangzhou is a key national transportation hub and trading port. One of
the five National Central Cities, it holds sub-provincial administrative
status. Guangzhou is the third largest Chinese city and the largest city
in South Central China. As of the 2010 census, the city's administrative
area had a population of 12.78 million. Some estimates place the
population of the entire Pearl River Delta Mega City built up area as
high as 40 million, with an area of about 20,000 square kilometres
(7,700 sq mi). In 2012 Guangzhou was identified as a Beta+ World City by
the global city index produced by the GaWC, the Globalization and World
Cities Research Network.

Benefiting from its location near Hong Kong and Macao and the regional
advantage of opening and economic development, the university has become
an important base for training high-level talents, scientific research,
providing services to society and inheriting cultural traditions. The
University has also successfully built international cooperation and
exchange relationships with many top universities in the world.
