I was pleasantly surprised recently to receive an invitation to speak at the annual International Conference for the Integration of Science, Technology and Society (ICISTS), hosted by KAIST here on campus and at the nearby Daejeon Convention Center August 5-9. It is the largest student-organized interdisciplinary conference on this topic in Asia and appears to have been attracting growing interest in recent years. You can learn more about the conference here, at its web site.
I've been invited to speak on the Sub-topic of "New Values," and to discuss the changes occurring in political society in the internet age. The conference looks most interesting and I'm looking forward to exchanging views with students, faculty and other participants from Korea and 20 or more other countries!
