Our project will be present on this year's ICHSEA conference in Frankfurt, the most important international scholarly meeting in the field, which takes place every four years, with two "twin" panels organized by Dr. Cao Jin and Dr. Alexander Jost and named "Knowledge Transfer between Europe and Ming-Qing China - Science" and "Knowledge Transfer between Europe and Ming-Qing China - Technology". Members and associates of the project presenting at these panels are beside the organizers: Sabine Kink, Jonas Schmidt, Anna Strob and Han Qijin. With the support of our Sino-German Mobility Program it has become possible to invite a large number of participants from the P.R. China, which are Zhang Baichun, Zheng Cheng, Sun Chengsheng (Chinese Academy of Sciences), Shang Zhicong (University of Chinese Academy of Sciences), Gong Xu (University of Science and Technology of China), Thierry Meynard (Sun Yat-sen University) and Han Qi (Zhejiang University). Further presenters at the panels will be Shi Yunli (University of Science and Technology of China), Dominic Sachsenmaier (Göttingen University) and Angela Schottenhammer (KU Leuven). For the individual presentations see panels 13 and 14.
Father Schall was the second participant of the mobility program. His visit to the Far West aimed at demonstrating how this table should look like, when people travel in the other direction. Furthermore, Pater Schall used the opportunity to explain details about the translation process of the Kunyu gezhi to members of the research project.
Dr. Cao was the first participant of the mobility program to depart for an exchange visit. During her fortnight stay in Beijing she met with Prof. ZHANG Baichun, Dr. LI Mingyang and other colleagues of CAS-IHNS to discuss the further proceeding of the program and relevant academic cooperation. Besides, she made use of her time in Beijing to carry out research and acquire sources especially at the Number One Historical Archives and the National Library of China.
