Welcome Letter

Dear participants,

On behalf of CIPA, I warmly welcome all of you to participate in CIPA2015.
For most people, Taiwan (Formosa) is a new place. There is indeed a rich history with cultural assets, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and a variety of dishes, all of which you can savor during the conference.

During early autumn in Taipei, the day temperature is still relatively high with an average of more than 30 degrees Celsius, while at night a light jacket should be sufficient. Due to Monsoon season during this time of year, there will occasionally be an occasional rainfall. I suggest that before departure, please check the weather forecast. (

The General Assembly has made the best possible preparation ahead of your visit. For the latest conference schedule, please go to . If you have any needs, please contact us (Email:, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
