We are very pleased to announce the launch of our newly designed website. Visit us at Following a difficult year, COVID-19 has taught us interacting via digital channels is more essential than ever. Our new website will serve as a platform for all in the world to connect with us. Thanks to the Department of Computer Science, we engaged an undergraduate student Ms Cara Ho to finish this makeover with adept guidance from Dr. Martin Choy and Mr. Kenny Cheng. After months of hard work and dedication, we are delighted to officially announce the launch on April 30, 2021.

Not only does the new website give us a platform to communicate our activities lively but also a channel to interact with scholars in and outside Hong Kong for information sharing and collaboration.

Besides, we are also very pleased to announce the new institute logo to convey the ongoing evolution of science in our time.


We hope you all like the new website and logo and would appreciate any feedback!
