Kaohsiung City

Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second-largest city and the undisputed hub of commerce and transportation in southern Taiwan. As the world‘s sixth largest cargo-container seaport, Kaohsiung is also known as the Harbor Capital of Taiwan. Its year-round fine weather, low cost of living, hospitality and diverse tourist attractions makes Kaohsiung a favorite destination for visitors to Taiwan. As the host city for 2008 World Games, Kaohsiung has transformed itself into an elegant city at the heart of Taiwan’s fastest-growing metropolitan area.


National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU)

In the 1970s, Taiwan's economic development took off, and society's attention to higher education increased day by day. At that time, all well-known universities were located in northern Taiwan, and there was not a single national university in the Kaohsiung-Pingtung area of southern Taiwan. To balance the development of education between the north and the south, the government decided to establish a comprehensive university in the south and named it "National Sun Yat-sen University" in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the Republic of China. Enrollment began in the fall of 1980. To further commemorate Dr. Sun Yat-sen's achievements, the Ministry of Education granted the request to date Dr. Sun Yat-sen's birthday of November 12th as the anniversary of the University.

Dr. Huan LI, the first president, laid a solid foundation that paved the way for the University to grow. Under the leadership of his successors, Dr. Chin-Chi CHAO, Dr. Chi-Yuan LIN, Dr. Victor Wei-Chi LIU, Dr. Chung-Cheng CHANG, Dr. Hung-Duen YANG, and the current President Dr. Ying-Yao CHENG, the University has continued to thrive and become one of the best universities in the country.


The TERA2021 will be held on the scenic campus of NSYSU, a seashore university overlooking the Hsitsu Bay and surrounded by lush mountains. Near and within the campus there are several historic relics, tourist attractions and precious wildlife species which make NSYSU a unique conference site.
