The biennial 19th Asia-Pacific Vibration Conference (APVC2021) to be held in Qingdao is postponed to 12th - 15th May 2022 due to the effect of recent outbreak of small-scale COVID19 at several locations in China. APVC is an international conference series established by a group of reputable researchers/academics from the Asia Pacific countries in 1980s to encourage scientific and technical exchange and cooperation on vibration and vibration related fields. The conference aims to bring researchers, engineers and students from, but not limited to the Asia Pacific countries, in a collegial and stimulating environment to present the most recent advances in theories, technologies and new applications regarding vibration and sound. This conference pays a special attention to cultivate a sociable and professional atmosphere to encourage socializing, networking between attendees, and to forge new friendships and consolidate the existing ones, in addition to the benefits of exchanging new ideas and technologies.
The previous eighteen series conferences were successfully held in Japan (1985), Korea (1987), China (1989), Australia (1991), Japan (1993), Malaysia (1995), Korea (1997), Singapore (1999), China (2001), Australia (2003), Malaysia (2005), Japan (2007), New Zealand (2009), Hong Kong (2011), Korea (2013), Vietnam (2015), China (2017) and Australia (2019).
Conference attendees can also choose to have a walking tour of the picturesque Qingdao pier (栈桥), Shilaoren beach (石老人景区), Badaguan (八大关), TsingTao beer museum (青岛啤酒博物馆) or take a bus tour of Langyatai (琅玡台景区) in the social programme offered by the organizer. Qingdao also has many fancy cafes, bars, and restaurants serving various cuisines from the East to the West. For those wanting to venture a little further, day trips are possible to Laoshan Mountain (崂山) - the highest seaside mountain in the country, to experience a scenic tour and learn about its rich history.
