 Mathematics: Fundamentals and Applications

 

Objectives

  This three-day (July 16 – 18) mathematics symposium in UKC 2009 aims to bring together Korean and Korean-American research mathematicians and their foreign colleagues in Korea and throughout the United States. All mathematicians are encouraged to participate to explore all areas of mathematics and the current frontiers of science and engineering. The recent developments in mathematical science tell us the importance of interactive collaboration among all mathematicians and scientists. New opportunities for mathematicians are present in many exciting new frontiers in various science, including nanoscience, genomics, biomedical research, quantum computation, the computers and Internet to name a few. This symposium plans to bring many distinguished mathematicians who work in the frontier of science and engineering, and create a venue for interaction between various directions of research in mathematics.

 

Scope

This symposium will cover all research areas in mathematics. Five or six sessions are proposed as follows:

 

Special Publications

Selected papers among the papers presented in the symposium will be published either in the Journal of Korean Mathematics Society or in The Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computing published by Springer.

Venue Information

We are pleased to announce that the 2009 United States-Korea Conference on Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship will be held July 16-19, 2009, in Raleigh, North Carolina in the newly opened, state-of-the-art Raleigh Convention Center (RCC). Raleigh, a vertex of the famed Reserch Triangle Park, is experiencing a dynamic downtown revival, exemplified by the RCC which is a stunning facility in the heart of the City of Oak's, and is specially designed to offer high quality meeting space for a wide variety of functions and events. We are very excited to hold the UKC 2009 in this architecturally impressive space.

The RCC provides 500,000 square feet of elegant, functional space, including a spectacular exhibit hall, 20 meeting rooms, open reception areas, and a stunning ballroom. It is the centerpiece of an energetic and sophisticated city with unparalled charm. Center visitors are first welcomed into a grand lobby, with its floor-to-ceiling windows. The open and airy, 4100-square foot, street-level mezzanine overlooks the exhibit hall and provides easy access to all other areas of the Center as well as the adjacent new four-star, 400-room Marriott Hotel. Granite details, casual seating arrangements, and a gracious reception area create the ideal spot to mix and mingle before or after events. Just steps from the Convention Center is a revitalized Fayetteville Street, alive with new hotels, top-notch restaurants, and assorted shops. Click here for directions to the Convention Center as well as parking information.

Known for its Research Triangle Park, the nation's largest planned research development community with some of the world's largest corporations, Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, is home to several prestigious universities, high-tech and pharmaceutical companies and great entertainment and museums. NC State University, located in Raleigh is one of the nationa's premier research institutions and a national leader in engineering, architecture, bio-technology, and veterinary medicine. The University also has a close relationship with many area technology companies. It's work in signal processing, communication and microchip technology is at the forefront in national research. The entire Triangle regions boasts 18 colleges, universities and community-colleges--including the internationally renowned Duke University in Durham and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Often dubbed the "Smithsonian of the South, Raleigh is home to a variety of world-class museums which are among the biggest and best in the Southeast. It offers the only interactive museum about the world, along with the area's largest Natural History Museum and Art Museum with the most comprehensive European art collection in the South. In addition, the Museum of Natural Sciences and the Marbles Kids Museum offer programs and exhibits for people of all ages. Raleigh is also the home to the North Carolina Symphony, the North Carolina Theatre, and the Carolina Ballet, which have earned critical acclaim from critics around the country.

Raleigh enjoys a temperate subtropical climate, with a typically warm to hot temperature with frequent thunderstroms in the summer months. In a normal year, July is the warmest month with averages highs around 89 degrees.
