In order to better promote the construction and development of Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory, the opening ceremony and the first academic forum of South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center were held in Dongguan, Guangdong province on November 24-25, 2018.

Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory (SLAB) was established under the leadership of the Institute of Physics (IOP), Chinese Academy of Sciences in partnership with Dongguan Municipal Government and the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences. South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center (Center) relies on SLAB, combines with domestic and foreign universities, Chinese Academy of Sciences, National Natural Science Foundation of China and other institutions to draw on the successful experience of similar international research institutions and invites world-class scholars to conduct medium- and long-term or short-term visits. Center will focus on in-depth scientific seminars and create a series of well-known international conferences and workshops. Center aims at building a platform of high-level, long-term and stable academic exchanges and collaborative research. Focusing on materials science, facing life, energy, advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence and other multidisciplinary intersections, Center continues to pay attention to relevant scientific frontiers and the latest developments in China and abroad. Also, Center carries out cross-cooperation and provides innovative ideas and sources of results. Center is open to the public, publicizing and popularizing various achievements formed by the intersection of materials science and related disciplines. Center aims at forging advanced scientific and cultural foundations, promoting and cultivating more outstanding young people to devote themselves to cutting-edge research. Also, Center establishes good cooperative relations with the government, enterprises, universities as well as research institutes and provides strategic consulting for the development of SLAB and leads the development of interdisciplinary subjects in China and the world.

On the morning of the 24th, the opening ceremony of the Center was held in Dongguan Songshan Lake University City. Academician Xie Xincheng, Deputy Director of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Academician Gao Hongjun, Deputy Secretary-General of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Xiao Yafei, Mayor of Dongguan, Academician Zhu Jingwu, Representative of Hong Kong and Macao, Professor Eberhard Bodenschatz, Overseas Representative and Chairman of Max Planck Gesellschaft of Chemistry, Physics and Technology, Academician Gao Song, President of South China University of Technology attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech. Academician Wang Enge, Director-General of SLAB, expressed his gratitude and delivered a speech to the leaders and guests attending the opening ceremony. He said that by organizing scientific research personnel of different disciplines and professional backgrounds to carry out collaborative research, innovate institutional mechanisms, and focus on major scientific research directions, Center is expected to become a world-class academic exchange center.

At the opening ceremony, Director-General Wang Enge granted a letter of appointment to Director of Center Tang Chao, Executive Deputy Director Hu Jiangping , Deputy Director Dai Xi and Tang Leihan. Subsequently, Director Tang Chao, Professor Eberhard Bodenschatz, Fang Zhong, Director of the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Academician Zhu Jingwu, Gao Song, President of South China University of Technology, and Wang Enke, President of South China Normal University jointly unveiled plaque for the Center. Academician Wang Enge, Director-General of SLAB, Liang Weidong, Secretary of Dongguan Municipal Party Committee, Academician Zhao Zhongxian, Director of Laboratory Academic Committee, Xiao Yafei, Mayor of Dongguan, Academician Zhan Wenlong, Director-General of China Physical Science, Zheng Haitao, Deputy Director-General of Department of science and technology of Guangdong Province, Academician Xie Xincheng, Deputy Director of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Huang Shaowen, Member of the Standing Committee of Dongguan Municipal Party Committee, Academician Gao Hongjun, Deputy Secretary-general of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Ouyang Nanjiang, Director of Songshan Lake Management Committee, Academician Du Jiangfeng, Vice President of University of Science and Technology of China, Zhuo Qing, Deputy Director of Songshan Lake Management Committee, Researcher Zhao Wei, President of Xi'an Branch of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Wang Xuehua, Vice President of Sun Yat-sen University, Xie Changlong, Vice President of Guangzhou Branch of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Xie Maohai, Director of the Department of Physics of University of Hong Kong, and Professor Tang Zikang, Director of the Department of Physics of University of Macau, witnessed the unveiling ceremony together.

After the unveiling ceremony, a symposium was held. Fang Zhong, Legal Representative of SLAB and Director of the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, introduced the construction plan, work progress and future development plan of SLAB and South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center. He said that Center's implementation of International Science and Technology Innovation Center of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will make it become a talent attraction center, and will also provide innovative ideas and sources of results for cross-disciplinary integration. Leaders of the participating governments, universities and research institutes have put forward valuable suggestions on the construction and future development of SLAB and South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center. Academician Xie Xincheng, Academician Gao Hongjun, Academician Cai Ronggen, Academician Chen Xianhui, Academician Du Jiangfeng, Academician Gao Song, Academician Gong Xingao, Academician Yu Dapeng, Academician Xie Xiaoliang, Academician Yu Yu, Academician Zhan Wenlong, Academician Zhu Jingwu, Academician Guo Hong, Academician Wang Enge, Academician Zhao Zhongxian and more than 20 academicians from China, the United States, Germany, Canada and other academicians of National Academy of Sciences, presidents and vice presidents of many universities as well as directors of research institutes participated in this event.
