The 16th POP Forum

On May 16-20, several of the group members attended the 16th POP Forum in Xi’Ning. It was a wonderful conference. Huang Chen, Shizhen and Gan gave talks, Wang Xiao presented a poster. We also met former group members Lin Tian, Pan Xiaohui and Zhang Ruijie. After the meeting, we had a half-day trip to Taer Temple (塔乐寺)one-day trip to Chaka Salt Lake (扎卡盐湖)and Qinghai Lake. We were lucky that arranged by Mr Yang we were able to enter the centre of the Natural Reserve of Qinghai Lake, also called Niandao. We had a unique experience along the lake shore with splendid view and birds around.
