You will have gained an insightful opinion after having several in-depth discussions involving science and technology. The topics are carefully chosen from current science issues that have significant impact on our society. We guarantee that you will have broadened your view of the issues after the conference.
#3. Interaction with an international student body
At ICISTS-KAIST 2010, you will interact with students from almost 30 different countries, as well as Korean students from top universities in Korea, to form a world-wide human network. Social events include the Gala Night, the closing ceremony of ICISTS-KAIST when all delegates celebrate the end of our 4-day program. All delegates of the conference will share special memories and keep in touch even long after the close of the conference.
ICISTS-KAIST is an event in which you can develop an astute perspective and meet with international global leaders. In a world where science never ceases to undergo rapid development and affect society, students more educated and more concerned in the field of science and technology are needed.
