The first conference was held in Guangzhou in 1986 and hosted by South China University of Technology, then successively in Nanjing, Wuhan, Xi¡¦an, Jinan, Beijing and Chongqing. Again in collaboration with South China University of Technology, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University will host the eighth conference in Hong Kong in October 2006.
