It is my great pleasure and honor to extend a warm invitation to you to attend the 8th International Symposium on Radiation Safety and Detection Technology (ISORD-8) to be held in Jeju Island, Korea from July 14 to 16, 2015.
The objective of ISORD is to provide a forum in which participants exchange their views and information on radiation safety and detection technology, and also address general issues in radiation protection.
The participants include international experts in the field such as scientists, medical doctors, and industrial engineers. Over the past 14 years, ISORD has been organized every two years in Korea, Japan, China, and Malaysia with over 300 participants from all around the world. ISORD-8 is the third symposium to be held in Korea. ISORD-8 will offer high quality technical activities including keynote speeches, research sessions, and poster sessions.
I hope you join ISORD-8 in Jeju Island, which is listed as one of the world’s new 7 wonders of nature. It is also known as “Sam-Da-Do” which translates as “the island abundant with three things: stones, winds and women”. (Stones are the result of the volcanic eruptions; winds refer to typhoons; and the island used to have more women then men since men sailed out to sea.) Jeju has long been a popular honeymoon place for its temperate climate and fascinating scenery of Halla Mountain and the white sand beaches.
I look forward to welcoming all participants of ISORD-8 and discussing radiation safety and detection technology.
I hope you will enjoy your stay in Jeju Island, as well.
With warm regards,
Dr. Kyo-Youn Kim
