International Symposium on IT Convergence Engineering - Invitation

2009 International Symposium on  IT Convergence Engineering

Date: Oct. 16 ~17, 2009

Location: POSCO International Center at POSTECH

��

U-Health approach to deliver quality and affordable health care to the citizens has been gaining popularity in Korea and other industrialized nations. To achieve this objective, advances in information technology (IT), biotechnology (BT) and the emerging field of nanotechnology (NT) are critical. More importantly, practical implementation requires convergence of these disciplines. The Division of IT Convergence Engineering (ITCE) has been established at POSTECH as part of the World Class University (WCU) Program to address this fundamental need by bringing together Distinguished Visiting Faculty from abroad and domestic experts at POSTECH.

To celebrate the establishment and opening of our new WCU Division of ITCE at POSTECH, we have organized the first International Symposium on IT Convergence Engineering which will be held on October 16-17, 2009 at POSCO International Center, POSTECH, Pohang. We are very pleased to invite you to this symposium where world-class experts on Autonomics, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Healthcare are scheduled to speak. Industrial vision for U-Health will be provided by speakers from LG Electronics, KT, CHT and medical perspectives will be covered by leading doctors from Seoul St. Mary��s Hospital and Dongsan Medical Center. In addition, we have international list of invited speakers from U.S., Canada and China, as you will see in the enclosed program.

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