Some 80 scientists from a wide variety of technical fields were invited. About two dozen talks were presented on topics such as novel polymers, bio-diversity, high temperature superconductivity, data mining, and numerical cosmology, each followed by lively discussions. The event attracted the attention of high Chinese officials including Li Lanqing, Vice Premier of the Chinese State Council, whose welcome address was televised.
