Smart Science, Engineering and Health for Livable Communities
August 14-17, 2019, Hyatt Regency O’Hare, Rosemont (suburb of Chicago), IL, USA

UKC 2019 is hosted by three prestigious organizations – the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA), Korean Federation of Science & Technology Societies (KOFST), and Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO).

The theme of UKC 2019 is “Smart Science, Engineering and Health for Livable Communities.” We would like to address technological challenges in the era of the 4th industrial evolution in building livable communities. Specifically, we will discuss these issues in three tracks: smart science, smart engineering and smart health. UKC 2019 provides valuable opportunities for cooperation between the United States and Korea. With a rich history of over thirty years, the UKC program includes plenary sessions, symposiums, forums and workshops that cover broad areas of science and technology.

UKC 2019 will provide opportunities for participants to discuss many hot issues through various symposium sessions and forums. We will invite more young members by expanding the Young Generation and Professional Forum (YG/PF) program and the Youth Science and Technology Leadership Camp (YSTLC). We plan to provide a meeting space for young entrepreneurs to share their ideas and build international networks. By expanding the Science Diplomacy Forum, UKC 2019 will provide a venue to discuss the role of science diplomacy and other related issues for enhancing cooperative activities and contributing to prosperity, such as Paektu mountain volcano, power shortage in North Korea and transportation network between North and South Koreas. We will also continue the University Leadership Forum to assist higher education’s globalization.
