The preparations for the SIL Congress at Nanjing-China in August 2018 are now at high gear. Indeed, in their December 2017 visit to the Congress venue in Nanjing, our president and General Secretary-Treasurer found a team of Chinese researchers and students that are truly dedicated to the task of hosting SIL in the best possible manner. Moreover, they found a modern and well-equipped congress center, with comfortable and conveniently located near-by hotels at a range of prices from very affordable, to 5-stars.

Today’s Nanjing is a modern city. Most street signs, business signs, and other posts are written in both Chinese and English, young Chinese people speak at least some English, the city is well covered by a Metro system. Being in China and witnessing the incredible modernization this developing country has undergone over the last two decades is a special experience.
