Welcome to the second regional special section spotlighting China. We are pleased to report there have been many exciting changes in technological advances and achievements since the first special section on China was published in the November 2018 issue of Communications. We hope the following articles will help you learn about and appreciate such changes.

For this special section, we launched a call for participation on January 10, 2021. This call attracted 34 proposals from 22 institutes—both academia and industry—across China. Given the pandemic situation in some cities of China, we organized a hybrid workshop on February 6, 2021, with seven sessions, including storage and blockchain, open source software and education, IoT, health informatics, accessibility, NLP and speech, AR&SLAM and vision. The workshop, which was a great success, created a live forum for people inside the region to exchange ideas and recent progress in various areas of the industry.
