Distinguished scholars and guests,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome Antarctic friends and family from around the globe to the 13th International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences (ISAES 2019).
Over the years, the International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences (ISAES) has provided us with many opportunities to stay up-to-date on recent Antarctic geoscience research achievements and foster international collaboration for future studies.
The ISAES 2019 will be held during July 22-26, 2019 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. ISAES 2019 will be organized by the Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) and the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of Korea. This symposium aims to bring together Antarctic earth scientists from different areas of research in order to gather and highlight their outstanding expertise and ideas through 25 sessions under 10 major themes.
We look forward to seeing you at Incheon, Korea. I am confident that you will find the symposium rewarding and that you will return home with inspirational ideas and keen insights. Once again, we welcome you to Korea and to the ISAES 2019.
Ho Il Yoon
President of KOPRI
