Accommodation
Participants of the MetFoam2017 are kindly asked to book rooms directly at the hotels listed at the MetFoam2017 website.

We have agreed accommodation for our attendees in the Hohai University International Conference Center & Hotel (Hohai University International Academic Exchange Center) (recommended), Nanjing Grand Hotel and Nanjing Suning Universal Hotel, all of which are located near the Hohai University campus. If you would like to book a room (standard room/king-size bedroom), please leave the information of name(s), country to DR. JIAN-QING CHEN at

jianqingchen@metfoam2017.org before the date of August 5, 2017.
How to get to Nanjing? 
Nanjing is served by the bullet train system between Nanjing and Shanghai. Because of the convenience, speed and cheaper ticket prices, the bullet train may be the best way to approach Nanjing. Otherwise, there are regular trains, long-distance buses and flights.

Getting to Nanjing

Step 1. By Air to Shanghai

Shanghai is the only city in China that has two international airports - Pudong International Airport and Hongqiao International Airport. The two modern airports are equipped with very advanced facilities. The two airports are widely linked with many domestic and international cities such as Beijing, Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Tokyo and Singapore.

Step 2. By High-Speed Train from Shanghai to Nanjing

The high-speed rail line between Nanjing and Shanghai stops at Suzhou, Wuxi, and Changzhou. It is one of the busiest high-speed rail sections in China. It takes about one hour to travel from Shanghai to Nanjing.
