The 17th International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound is coming to Nanjing, China, from May 31st to June 2nd, 2017. It is a great honor for us to host this wonderful symposium, and to bring together academic and industrial researchers from all over the world to allow scientific exchange, and to inspire new ideas and projects.

The Institute of Acoustics at Nanjing University was founded by Prof. Rongjue Wei in 1954. It is the top acoustics department among Chinese universities, and has broad research directions, including physical acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, biomedical ultrasound, photoacoustics, ultrasound transducer design, electroacoustics and audio acoustics.

Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province, People's Republic of China, is the second largest city in the east China region. Situated in the downstream Yangtze River drainage basin and Yangtze River Delta economic zone, throughout history Nanjing has always served as a national hub of education, research, transportation and tourism. Famous for lush green parks, natural scenic lakes, purple mountains, historical buildings, relics and monuments, Nanjing is listed as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China and attracts thousands of tourists every year.

I am looking forward to seeing you in NANJING, CHINA.
