北京2010 年 (Beijing 2010)

The next world conference of the International Stuttering Association is going to be in Beijing in 2010. I am convinced that they will produce a great conference. I have always been amazed by the sheer endless determination and intelligence of the Chinese people (apart from some political lapses... some of which might be understandable given the historical baggage). I wonder how traditional Chinese medicine treats stuttering. I have never been in China, but I definitely plan to go one day. So maybe the conference would be a good excuse. Here is the text from the ISA website:

It's official, the next World Conference of the International Stuttering Association will be held in Beijing, China in 2010. Yes, the newly formed Chinese Stuttering Association will host this world event in cooperation with the China Rehabilitation Research Center, Beijing Normal University and the China Medical Academy so it is sure to be a another well organised, well atttended, exciting and informative event following on from the previous ISA congress successes in Croatia, Australia, Belgium, South Africa, Sweden, Germany, USA and Japan so start planning ahead now to be part of this inspiring event. If you have any way you can assist our Chinese organising committee please contact the head of the conference organisaing committee, Zong-Shan Li at More information when it comes to hand.
