Joint Korean-German Conference

November 16-18, 2016, Dresden, Germany

Joint Korean German Conference
After seven successful Joint Korean-German Conferences in Seoul, Korea, we cordially invite you to the 2016’s edition “Engineering for our future” to be held from November 16 to 18 in Dresden, Germany. The main topics of the conference will be: 5G & Tactile Internet, Digital Products, E-Health, Energy Transition in Micro-/(Nano-)Electronics, Future Electronics and Robotics. The conference is organized by the Alumni Network Gemany-Korea (ADeKo), the City of Dresden, the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden), the Science and Technology Policy Institute (STEPI), the RWTH Aachen University, Fraunhofer Society, Korea Institute of Science & Technology Evaluation and Planning (KISTEP) and The Korean Scientists and Engineers Association in the FRG (VeKNI). The conference will offer valuable opportunity for lively discussion among international experts.

The Korean-German Joint Conference is an annual conference, organized by the Alumni Network Germany-Korea. The goal of each conference is to offer a platform for exchange between research projects and to support and promote research cooperations between Korea and Germany. We want to give universities, research or ministerial institutions and companies the opportunity to develop international partnerships.

The first conference took place in 2009 and was held in Seoul, South Korea. Because the past international conferences have very successful, talking about „Green Growth against Climate Change“ (2011), „Basic Science“ (2012), „Research and Industry“ (2013), Future and Technology (2014) and Science and Innovation (2015) it was decided to bring the conference to Germany for the first time, after the city of Dresden personally invited ADeKo.
