As the largest city in South Korea, dynamic Seoul is a bewitching mix of ancient and modern structures, packaged in a surprisingly compact metropolis that has earned it the designation of a UNESCO City of Design. The nation’s capital has a cutting-edge cityscape of glass, steel and futuristic skyscrapers, which tower over traditional wooden houses with tiled roofs and mazes of cobbled alleys in distinct, village-like districts.

As Program Chair Siva Athreya, and Local Organizing Committee Chair Hee-Seok Oh, say, “We look forward to seeing you in Seoul!”
