The conference organizers, staff members, and student volunteers  
indeed put enormous effort and worked for super long hours to make  
sure the conference go smoothly. Their great work is absolutely well  
received and highly appreciated.

Great to hear the conference went well! Looks like China is becoming a  
country in hosting top conferences.

Great research +great food +great culture + great people + great  
organization = successful conference

This was a great social networks conference, one of the best that I  
attended. The papers were solid -- better than most Sunbelts that I  
have seen. The colleagues from East Asia and elsewhere were  
delightful, and the hospitality was out of this world.

Most papers were in English, although there was a separate track for  
Chinese-language papers.

Here's the program:

Huge praise to Prof Yanjie Bian, conference manager Vivian Wang, and  
their associates for great organizing and welcoming.
