Vice-president Yang Xiaobo presided over the opening ceremony.

President Li Yanrong showed welcome and gratitude to all the participants. He said that terahertz science had received widespread attention as a new frontier. China started with the 270th Xiangshan Science Conference, having made great progress in this field. Since terahertz science is playing a key role in most majors of our university, Academician Liu Shenggang spared no effort to help our school seize the opportunity of Nation “2011 Plan”, which promoted the successful establishment of Terahertz Science Collaborative Innovation Center. President Li also raised hopes that the experts could guide the work of the center and jointly promoted the development of terahertz science and technology.

Tai Zhongzhi congratulated on the success of the conference. He focused on elaborating and analyzing the significance and existing challenges of terahertz science, “the new technology is going to improve the utilization of spectrum resource… However, it is not mature enough to turn into a new industry. And this challenge needs higher education institutes to look at core technology issues with forward-looking vision in order to push forward progress in terahertz science.

Du Xiangwan, Wang Kang, Zhang Jiayuan and Xie Xia also addressed the opening ceremony respectively.
