A delegation of scholars from the  Chinese Academy of Sciences, led by Professor Lu Yongxiang, President of the Academy, visited CityU on 22 May.

Professor Lu, who was conferred an Honorary Doctor of Science by CityU in 1997, said on his arrival, "I feel as though I'm visiting my alma mater." One major purpose of the visit was to strengthen academic ties between the Academy and CityU.

Greeted in the Multi-media Conference Room by a group of nine senior faculty members led by President H K Chang, the delegates watched a video introducing major developments at CityU. Impressed delegate Professor Fu Jiamo said, "Not only is CityU young and dynamic, it is also rich in cultural diversity." The delegates were then given a tour of the Centre of Super-Diamond and Advanced Films by CityU's Professor S T Lee, and the Heavy Structures Laboratory, where Professor Michael Hung demonstrated his shearography technique.

The other delegates from the Academy were Professor Wu Dexin, Professor Gan Fuxi, Professor Chen Kaixian, Mr Zhang Xinggen and Mr Liu Fengsong. CityU's Professor David Tong from the Department of Physics and Materials Science, who was named an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for his contributions to the study of surface physics and nanotechnology, was also among the reception committee.
