The steering committee of the ICCHA met in Doha, Qatar, hosted by Professor Thilo Rehren of UCL Qatar. Thilo, who is now director in UCL Qatar, stepped down from the position of executive director of the centre, although he remains on the steering committee. Professor Dorian Fuller has been appointed to take over as the UK Executive Director of the ICCHA. Also at this meeting, forthcoming publications from ICCHA conferences were discussed as well as initial plans for our next conference in 2014, with a focus on "a comparative perspective on the origins of Chinese Civilization."
