Xi¡¯an has more than 3100 years of history. Xi¡¯an was the Capitol City of Ancient China under 13 dynasties, including several of the most important ones such as Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui, and Tang. It is the oldest of the ancient capitols of China. Xi'an was the root of the storied Silk Road, which connected the East and the West for over a thousand years. It is the home of the world-famous Terracotta Army of the First Emperor of China (third century BC). In modern times, Xi'an has re-emerged as the center of the northwest China.
Around every 40 minutes, there is a flight from Beijing or Shanghai to Xi'an. The flight will take around 2 hours. You can also fly to Xi'an via a flight transfer at HongKong.
Xi'an has about 70 universities (more than 10 of them have information fusion research programs) and 25 research institutes and more than 80% of them have information fusion related research projects. In general, there are more than 600 people (teachers, graduate students, engineers, etc.) in the institutes and universities in Xi'an who are doing information fusion related research. So, more than 100 local attendees can be expected.
Xi'an is one of the least expensive big cities in China and the world, as reflected in the budget. In summary, Xi'an is a great place for holding FUSION 2017.
