Message from General Chairs

The Division of IT Convergence Engineering at POSTECH is entering into the 3 rd year with its focus on Ubiquitous Healthcare (U-Health) and Ubiquitous Environment   (U-Environment) as part of the World-Class University (WCU) program of the Korean government .   U-Health has gained much attention in recent years in industrialized nations as the population is aging in many of these countries and the cost of healthcare as a share of the economy has been rising rapidly.   U-Health is expected to provide solutions to the world healthcare crisis through easy, constant, reliable and preventive health monitoring at home and while away at an affordable cost.   Another key aspect of the initiative is to ensure a better quality of life for the elderly citizens.   The U-Environment initiative also has captured worldwide attention due to the adverse effects of human activities on the quality of air, water, and other natural resources.   The recent earthquake/tsunami disaster and nuclear power plant accidents in Fukushima, Japan has certainly gained the attention and raised the importance of research and development in U-Environment.

To realize the goals of U-Health and U-Environment initiatives, the Division of ITCE at POSTECH has recognized the need to integrate advances in information technology, communications, networking, autonomics, biotechnology and nanotechnology.   In order to forge progress in these diverse areas and achieve convergence, the Division of ITCE has assembled Distinguished Visiting Professors from abroad and domestic experts to work together, not only to create a world-class research program but also to develop unique and innovative educational curriculum.   It has become a tradition of the Division of ITCE to showcase the progress in an annual event while learning from industrial and academic experts from all corners of the world.   We organized the first two Symposia on the IT Convergence Engineering in Pohang in October 2009 and August 2010 , respectively.   Keeping up with that tradition, we are pleased to announce the organization of the 3 rd International Symposium on IT Convergence Engineering to be held at the P OSCO International Center, POSTECH, Pohang , Korea on July 14 - 15, 2011.   You are cordially invited to participate in this symposium where world-class experts in all the subject areas are scheduled to speak.   An industrial vision in all of the above areas will be provided by leaders from the Korean industry and in addition, invited speakers from US and other countries have agreed to participate in the symposium.

 

We hope that you will find the symposium interesting and productive in raising and addressing key issues in U-Health and U-Environment. We look forward to seeing you in Pohang .
