During the physical conference, you need to provide the registrants registration package containing a printed Program Book (containing session schedules and abstracts), a hanging name badge, and a formal registration receipt. There is no USB containing all the registered papers as they are available for download from the ICEB conference website. Please note that the Conference Website, the Conference Submission System, and the Proceedings Book are handled by the ICEB Home Office and the online ZOOM meetings will be hosted by the University of Hong Kong, both under the guidance of Prof. Eldon Y. Li.

As ICEB Board prefers to authorize its annual conferences to known ICEB members. Institutions interested in hosting ICEB should send their research groups to participate in the conference during the prior few years. Furthermore, the locations of conferences rotate around different regions. Please contact me to know the forthcoming conferences. Normally, a conference is authorized at least two years prior to the time it is held.

On behalf of the ICEB Board, I cordially invite your institution to host the future conferences. But, please apply early. I look forward to receiving your intention letters and application packages.

Sincerely yours,
Eldon Y. Li
ICEB Honorary President
