Introduction

The unique shielding environments against cosmic ray in underground laboratories provide the settings for research opportunities in diverse fields of studies such as particle physics and astrophysics that require very low ambient radiation interference. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the prospects for developing the field of underground science in China. This will be the first OCPA workshop on this subject.

Some of the topics to be discussed in this meeting are:

The OCPA is a nonprofit professional international organization to promote physics research in general and to promote recognition of achievements by ethnic Chinese physicists in particular.
