Our History in AFSUMB

China is one of the sponsor nations of AFSUMB. In November 1985, Professor Jianfang Ren, as the representative of CMA, attended the AFSUMB inauguration meeting held in Kobe, Japan. He entered the first executive committee and participated in the initiation and formulation of the constitution of AFSUMB. After the establishment, CSUM extended its support and joined this big family. In other words, China is the legitimate member nation of AFSUMB.

As an active and vital role, CSUM organized the 4th AFSUMB in Beijing from 6th- 9th August 1995. According to the record, over 300 specialists and experts from 22 regions and courtiers attended and presented lectures, with over 600 delegates attending this meeting with more than 1,800 abstracts officially submitted.

CSUM attaches great importance to promote academic exchanges by sending its members joining overseas meetings, organizing large-scale international conferences, and inviting international groups and world-renowned personnel in the hope of bridging the gap between home and overseas.
