The seminar was divided into two phases. In the first, Nguyễn, Berezkin and Kim reported, respectively, on The Introduction, Collection and Research of Ancient Chinese Literature in Vietnam, The Spread and Influence of Ancient Chinese Novels, Opera and Drama in Russia and The Collection, Collation and Research of Yan Xinglu by Korea scholars. (Yan Xinglu is a book recording what Korean missions heard and saw during the Ming and Qing dynasties.)
