I would like to thank all the delegates who made this event possible and congratulate them for the success of this forum. I would also like to thank our Executive Committee members for providing their invaluable support in making this event successful. Thank you for giving me the honor to organize the GLF-CEM this year. I hope you had a great time in Hong Kong.
I am glad to announce that all the discussion sessions that occurred at the GLF-CEM 2013 have successfully ignited fresh thoughts for the future of GLF-CEM. We have accomplished the previously stated objectives of setting a research agenda for the CEM community. Three topics including long-term fundamental/scientific research questions, research issues/theme/problems/topics in the next decade, and multi-disciplinary research collaboration were fully discussed and a certain consensus was reached for future development of CEM.
The events and their outcomes are documented in this report for your reference and use in future discussions.
