Dear colleagues and friends,
A complete new version of the congress website is now back online. It coincided with the one-year countdown to the opening of the congress.
The new version updated arrangement of menus and page contents and added some new pages. The purpose of all the changes is easing visitors in finding information they need.
The changes in the new version of the congress website largely reflected the progress of the preparation work. Major changes include contents of Nomenclature Section, congress field trips, sponsorship and exhibition, social activities, congess venue, and travel awards. The information of speakers for public lectures, plenary lectures, and keynote symposia was extended.
The call for symposia had been closed and most notifications had been sent out. The Scientific Program Committee had been working on final program of the General Symposia. It is expected that the final program will come out before 31 August 2016 and then the congress registration and call for abstract site will come online.
