It is our great pleasure to announce the 2018 US-Korea Conference on Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship (UKC 2018). UKC 2018 will be held from Wednesday, August 1 to Saturday, August 4, 2018 in St. John’s University Conference Center in Queens, New York City, New York, United States. UKC 2018 is hosted by three prestigious organizations – the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA), Korean Federation of Science & Technology Societies (KOFST), and Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO).
UKC 2018 provides valuable opportunities for cooperation between the USA and Korea. The theme of UKC 2018 is “Leading Discoveries in the Era of the 4th Industrial Revolution.” The program includes symposiums, forums and workshops to cover broad areas of science and technology, including but not limited to basic science, applied science, engineering, technology, entrepreneurship, and science policy. The three pillars of the UKC 2018 program are: 1) Digital Technologies/Artificial Intelligence (AI); 2) Biomedicine; 3) Robotics/Autonomous Systems.
We are embracing Affiliated Professional Societies (APS) in the Symposiums. The Technical Groups (TG) leaders will lead the symposium and collaborate with related APSs. All Symposiums will embrace industry professionals as well as teaching focused submission from teaching universities. Young Generation Integration to the main UKC program will include separate forums for young professionals and the young generation.
An initiative will seek sponsorship from the US companies with effort led by industry professionals. Lastly, a 3-day Public Program invites the Korean communities and the general public into UKC 2018.
All of these excellent programs could not have been developed without a group of strong, dedicated leaders with servants’ hearts. Our sincere thanks go to the members of the Executive Committee, Program Committee including Symposium Chairs and Co-Chairs, the Local Arrangement Committee, Sponsor Program Committee, and the IT and Website Committee.
We welcome your participation and look forward to seeing you at UKC 2018!
