The Conference had 235 attendees from 27 countries and regions, among which were many young researchers including 45 graduate students. Nearly 180 papers were presented in both oral and poster sessions. The review process was rigorous, thanks to the work of about 90 reviewers coordinated by three Technical Co-Chairs, Prof. Lanbo Liu, Prof. Motoyuki Sato, and Dr. Fannian Kong.
