This year marks the centenary of the birth of Prof Jie-Liu Xin (1909–1994)—a pioneer and founderof acarology in China. Prof Xin was born in November 1909. By coincidence, the 9th National Congress of Acarology organized by the Entomological Society of China was held at Nanjing Agricultural University during 27–30 November 2009. In September 2009, Dr Zhi-Qiang Zhang proposed to Dr Xiao-Yue Hong, the organizer of the Congress, that a special symposium be held during the Congress in memory of Prof Xin and to celebrate the centenary of his birth. Dr Hong agreed and strongly supported this proposal, so did many colleagues who were invited to present lectures. Despite the short notice, we were able to dedicate a special commemorative symposium “Progress in Acarology in China” to Prof Xin during the Congress.
