UKC 2021 Thank you message to all participants


Dear UKC 2021 Participants,

I am truly grateful for your in-person participation in the US Korea Conference on Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship. I am happy to report that the conference ended without an issue, and no one had received positive results on COVID-19 tests.

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to dignitaries including Minister Hyesook Lim, KOFST President Woo Il Lee, KOFWST President Hee Sun Chung, and many others, three plenary keynote speakers, Andrea Ghez, Eric Goosby, and Jong Sung Koh, and special panel sessions’ invited panelists, UKC 2021 organizing committee members, technical symposium chairs and co-chairs, IES and FIRE symposium organizers, forum chairs, local organizing committee chair, co-chairs, and volunteers, HQ staff members, Euna, Kelly and Katie, and entertainment performers. They deserve credit for the success of the conference.

More importantly, you, the participant of UKC 2021, made the conference a huge success. Thank you!

We will share the photos from UKC 2021 on the conference website shortly. Again, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of KSEA, we have published our history book, KSEA 50 Years (free to download).

I would love to receive feedback from you. Please complete the conference survey. If I can be of help, please do not hesitate to contact me at
