A delegation from IIASA visited Beijing in March 2016 to enhance current collaborations. During this trip, a workshop took place that included a Public Lecture by Dr. Pavel Kabat, IIASA's Director General and CEO, which brought together many former YSSPers and their former supervisors.
Among them were Siyuan Yang and Hongmei Zheng, who share their impressions from the event below.
