It is with deep regret that I must announce the cancellation of the Beijing Conference. It became painfully clear to me that we did not have sufficient time to properly organize and conduct this conference such that it would be considered a success.
I wish to acknowledge the fine efforts made by the Program Committee lead by Dr. Armansyah Tambunan and Local Arrangements Committee headed by Dr. Zhifu Luo. I know that the members of these committees share with me their disappointment in this decision.
