SOME WORDS ABOUT BEIJING
Beijing is the center for culture, science, communication, and many other aspects of Chinese life. The capital of China is now a modern metropolitan city with a rich cultural heritage, from royal palaces and traditional monuments, of which the most famous are the Forbidden City and the Great Wall, to the popular Hutongs and Beijing Opera. Beijing is also a model of Chinese people's life and is the gateway to other parts of China.
Forestry- and Environmental- Sciences are very important issues in China. More
than 30 universities in the Mainland of China are dedicated to Agriculture
some of which are situated in the Beijing area. In this setting, development and
application of Plant Growth Models and Visualization tools have become
increasingly important. PMA06 also provides opportunities for the increasing
number of Chinese researchers active in these fields, to
enter the international community.
