Intercultural communication as an area of study has been around in China since the early 1980s. In a period of thirty years or so since then, we have witnessed remarkable achievements in this field in both theoretical aspects and practical applications. In the context of increasing globalization today, it would be appropriate for the forthcoming conference to focus on ways of linking theory to practice and emphasizing case studies of intercultural communication in various forms.
