satellite symposia and exhibitions, making it a notable event for all fellows
and professionals in the fields.
Taiwan is known
for its array of mountains, soaring forests, natural
settings, and cultural
essences, all of which comprise its magnificent
beauty. Because of these, early Portuguese sailors named the
island as ‘Ilha Formosa ', or “Beautiful Island”. Taiwan is
conveniently situated at
the crossroads of Northeast and Southeast Asia, on
one of the air traffic hubs in the world. Taipei, its
capital, is a vibrant city, with a fascinating blend of
tradition and modernity. In November, autumn weather is
pleasant and comfortable in Taiwan, bidding everyone to
