Dear KSEA members and Previous UKC participants,


The 32nd annual US-Korea Conference on Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (UKC 2019) is jointly organized by the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA) and the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST). It draws over 1,000 scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, government officials, corporate executives, and policy-makers. This year’s conference, UKC 2019, will be held on August 14 – 17, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, Rosemont near Chicago O’Hare Airport. Building on the strength of having numerous national laboratories, government agencies, universities and industries near the venue, UKC 2019 provides valuable opportunities for cooperation between the US and Korea.

The UKC 2019 theme “Smart Science, Engineering, and Health for Livable Communities” focuses on UKC’s special multi-disciplinary nature. UKC 2019 provides an environment where convergence and innovation can be shared through interdisciplinary integrations. The program covers broad areas of science and technology, including but not limited to basic science, applied science, engineering, technology, entrepreneurship, and science policy.
