Abstract: On March 29 2013, "The Centennial Seminar of Huang Bingwei's Academic Thoughts" was held by the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research and Geographical Society of China to commemorate the 100th birthday of Academician Huang Bingwei. At the meeting, a number of experts, including Academicians of CAS and CAE, and Huang's colleagues and students, looked back at his contribution to the development of geography in China in the latter half of the 20th century. Huang's academic contributions included but not limited to promoting the division and formation of physio-geographical sub-disciplines, directing the development of integrated physical geography, strengthening and widening the applicable fields of physical geography, guiding the way for geography to participate in the construction of earth system science. In future, promoting his study style and academic thoughts will be helpful for the development and innovation of geography.

Key words: application of geography, centennial seminar, Huang Bingwei, integrated physical geography, physio-geographical regionalization
