1. Overview of KOCSEA Technical Symposium

The objective of the KOCSEA Technical Symposium is to bring together top researchers
in computer science and engineering and information technology, both from the
academia and the industry, and from the U.S. and South Korea to assess current
progress in the fields of Information and Communication Technologies and Computer
Science and to chart out productive future directions that can lead to significant
contributions to the society.

This year the symposium will be held in Atlanta, GA on November 16 (Saturday) ~

November 17 (Sunday), 2019. The symposium will consist of invited talks by outstanding
researchers and practitioners in various fields in computer and information sciences, as
well as Panel sessions and Lightning Talk sessions that will discuss the cooperation
issues and future trends. In addition, the symposium organizing committee will invite
several keynote speakers who are distinguished researchers in computer science and
information technology. Based on our success of the past symposiums, we hope to
further increase the opportunities for research collaborations between academicians and
practitioners in the U.S. and South Korea in the field of computer and information
sciences through this symposium.
