20-23 December, 2013
Hong Kong Baptist University


  • Local participants who will drive to and park at HKBU, if you have not yet informed us your car plate number, please do it now.

  • The one-way shuttle bus time table (from the listed hotels) is now available:

    We informed the hotels and we will arrange a student in each hotel in the morning to assist you.  The coaches will depart punctually and so please arrive at the lobby a few minutes earlier.  However, when there are so many participants and so many hotels, the chance that no one suffers from our mistakes, disorder or misunderstanding is very low.  I hope we will have your understanding if anything goes wrong.    

  • The metro in Hong Kong is called MTR (Mass Transit Railway).  The logo of which is:


  • If you come to the conference venue by metro, then please take off at the "Kowloon Tong Station" (九龍塘站).

    If you want to take taxi from here, the taxi stand is close to Exit G1.

    If you prefer to walk, it will take about 15 minutes to walk from Exit A2 to the conference venue.  Click the link to see the google map.

    Note that if you walk, when you see the yellow building at the intersection of Junction Road (聯合道) and Renfrew Road (聯福道) shown below             

    you may just go into it and then continue to walk straight ahead (without going up or downstairs).  At the end point, you will find our coffee and refreshment corner and you are on level 3 of the Academic and Administrative Building (AAB for short).  The following map may give you some idea of the campus:

    The registration desk is on level 2 of the Academic and Administrative Building, and the opening ceremony and plenary sessions are held on the same floor.

  • If you are taking bus

    from Metropark Hotel, take Bus# 103 or 208, there is a stop on Renfrew Road, see
    from Regal Riverside Hotel, take Bus#85A, the first stop after the Lion Rock Tunnel is on Junction Road, see also

  • Please note that recently there is a raise in taxi fare in Hong Kong.  It takes quite some weeks until all taxi meters are adjusted.  Thus, the fare shown in the taxi meter is typically not final.  In the taxi there is a printed conversion table, mapping the fare shown in the meter to the new fare.  The increase should be less 10%.
