Welcome Message

Welcome to the AKC2018!

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Asia-Korea Conference on Science and Technology 2018 (AKC2018).  AKC is the signature event for Korean Scientists and Engineers Association and Chapters in the Asia-Pacific region and its aim is to promote scientific and technological collaborations between Asia-Pacific countries and Korea.

The AKC2018 follows in the footsteps of the five previous AKC conferences: held in Japan (2008), China (2009), Singapore (2013), Australia (2014) and Singapore (2017).  I hope that the AKC2018 will be another vibrant network platform to showcase emerging scientific and technological developments in the region and the benefits that can be gained by collaboration between countries.

The theme of AKC2018 is “The Fourth Industrial Revolution – Shaping Our Future”. We  hope to address development and wellbeing needs of the future generations and discuss how we can apply technology and new innovations for the advancement of all people.

AKC2018 is organised by the Korean Academy of Scientists and Engineers in Australasia (KASEA) in collaboration with the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST), the Korean Scientists and Engineers Association in Singapore (KSEASG) and the Korean-Chinese Scientists and Engineers Association (KCSEA).

The AKS2018 is held in Brisbane, a modern, dynamic and welcoming city which offers quintessential Australian experiences with access to the stunning Great Barrier Reef and proximity to famous beach destinations and World Heritage-listed rainforests.

We look forward to welcoming you at the AKC2018.

Yours sincerely,
