On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join the 16th International Symposium on Microwave and Optical Technology (ISMOT 2017) to be held from June 26 ~ 28, 2017 in Seoul, Korea. Seoul has been the political and economic center of the country throughout its long history and is known for its critically acclaimed pop culture at present. It is also the place where cutting edge technologies meet ancient cultures and traditions, making it one of the world’s top 10 tourist destinations.
The significance of microwave and optical technologies can be witnessed firsthand on a daily basis here in Seoul.
An average 8 out of 10 Seoulites use a simple payment card or cellular phones equipped with magnetic near-field circuits to commute around the sophisticated transportation system which includes subways, buses, taxis and airport shuttles throughout the country. Many of these transportations are provided with ultra-fast wireless communication thanks to extensive fiber-optics networks which will help you with directions, translations and many other needs. Equipped with a small plastic card and a cellular phone, you are now ready to explore the city as a Seoulite!
Over the three days together, we will forge new friendships and strengthen existing ones through lively communications and interactions. We aim to host many of the most brilliant minds stemming from academia, government and industry and I sincerely hope you will be here to join us.
