The 2020 Annual Academic Conference of FGS successfully convened in BNU
This conference invited ninety-nine lectures including eight invited lectures given by scholars from other institutions, seventy-two lectures from FGS faculty members and nineteen reports from FGS graduate students. The attendees also continued fruitful discussions after the conference which greatly motivated academic collaborations and communications across multi-discinplinary sciences.
To stimulate academic collaboaration and exchange on geographical sciences, FGS convened the 2020 Annual Academic Conference on Dec. 26, 2020 in the BNU Jingshi Hall. More than 1000 faculty members and research scientists from BNU and other academic institutions attended the conference on campus and online.
The conference were composed of plenary keynote presentations, parallel thematic sessions as well as posters. The plenary session was chaired by the Deputy Dean of FGS, Professor WU Jianjun. In the opening ceremony of the conference, the Executive Dean of FGS, Professor SONG Changqing delivered the opening speech.
