President Wang Enke, Prresident Liao Weiqun and Professor Chen Mingxuan made opening remarks during the ceremony.

During the forum, eight keynote speeches were delivered and discussed by Professor Takashi Ikuta, Professor Li Shuying, Professor Chen Mingxuan, etc.

On December 7, an award ceremony and closing ceremony were held. The closing ceremony was hosted by Professor Zhang Xuebo, vice president of the School of Information Technology in Education of SCNU. Award-winning authors were awarded certificates by Professor Xu Fuyin, and Professor Wu Pengze.

The IFERD Forum responded to the new demand for national education reform and development in the new era, providing a great communicative platform for national education workers especially those in the Greater Bay Area to implement education and teaching reform and innovate educational philosophy and models. It was beneficial to push forward the exploration of education reform in the 13th Five-Year Plan. This forum was a great academic event with profound influence, which contributed to global educational informationization and education reform.
