[GN Vol.3 No.2] KICS Fall Conference 2021
KICS Fall Conference 2021
by Oh-Soon Shin, Soongsil University, Korea
The KICS Fall Conference 2021 held on November 17–19, 2021 at The Ocean Resort, Yeosu, Jeonnam Province, Korea was a big success. More than 900 researchers participated in the conference, with over 540 paper presentations.
Until last year, the KICS Fall Conference was a one-day event. This year, the conference was extended to a three-day-long event to cover a variety of programs. Considering the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic situation, the conference was held both in person and online, similar to previous KICS conferences held earlier in the year. The main events held at the venue were simultaneously broadcast to all the participants to ensure their immediate access to the conference.
The conference offered a suitable platform to exchange new ideas and research results for all participants, including industries, academia, research institutes, and the Korean government. The paper presentations included topics such as information technology, communication technology, and related convergence technologies.
The conference offered an array of programs, including special sessions by KICS societies, research groups, and provincial branches. Particularly, Dr. Seung-Chan Bang, the president of the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, delivered a keynote speech on “3D Spatial Media, Communication, and Metaverse.” In the special sessions of Rising AI Start-ups, experts from eight promising AI-related start-ups presented various AI applications and exchanged the latest advances in the field. In addition, we had interesting tutorials on millimeter wave antennas, autonomous mobility, reinforcement learning, and low-orbit satellite-based non-terrestrial networks. A KICS general meeting was also conducted to reflect on various activities of the KICS over this year and prepare for next year.
I would like to announce that the upcoming event, the KICS Winter Conference 2022, will be held on February 9–11, 2022 at Alpensia Resort, Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province, Korea. Detailed information on the conference is available at the official website (https://conf.kics.or.kr).
