The special call for Stage I proposals for the China AoI ended on March 26, 2010. This call, open for only six weeks since its announcement, was met by a very positive response of eight submissions. The China AoI Working Group met in early April to consider these Stage I proposals and made its recommendations to the Common Core Curriculum Committee. Out of the eight proposals, six have been selected to proceed to Stage II. All preliminary Stage II results, including those for the October 2009 call and the special call, will be announced in mid June.
