The conference will be held at Sun Moon University, Asan, Korea. The university is located in a beautiful smart city, Asan enriched with folklife and cultural heritage activities. The peaceful and clean atmosphere provide better study environment to students.

It was very cold in the South Korea in February 10, 2000. Professor Koichi Niihara at the Osaka University. Japan and his delegations had been flied from several cities of Japan to the Kimpo Airport. When they had checked out the Kimpo airport, we had taken a short trip to the military boundary between the South Korean and the North Korea. Still in the military zone there are very intense weapons. During the one day conference of the first ISEPD (International Symposium of Eco-Materials Processing and Design), we had agreed to develop the advanced materials for contributing global problems such as energy and environment in the 21th centry.

This meeting has been mainly held in Korea, Japan, and Chine. In 2011 we had the first conference in Chiang Mai, Thailand except the China, Japan and Korea. After the successful conference in ChiangMai, it was strongly recommended to be held The ISEPD every 4 years in another Asian Countries. However, there the ISEPD conference has been held in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2014, in Kathumandu, Nepal in 2015, and in Jaipur, India in 2018. Hopefully we can organize the ISEPD in Yantai, Shandong China in 2020, in Sendai, Japan in 2021, and in DaNang, Vietnam in 2022.

Last year Professor Sanjay Mather, ISEPD2018 Chairman said that even these days global challenge for sustainable development and resource-efficient technologies has never been higher before. The international summit on ecofriendly and sustainable materials technologies is a premium forum for researchers, and engineers to discuss the most recent innovation, trends, challenges and solutions adopted for greener technological solutions. This event will bring together participants to share their vision on materials and engineering technologies enabling minimization of the carbon footprint and maximization of resource efficiency.

The technical program of ISEPD will include the participation of globally renowned experts, who will deliver plenary, keynote and thematic talks together with oral presentations (running in five parallel sessions) over the entire duration of the conference. In addition, posters sessions in January 5, 2019 will be organized to give the younger participants a chance to present their research.. This symposium will offer material researchers a valuable opportunity for gaining new knowledge on eco-materials in the fields of green processing, advanced materials, energy conversion/energy saving/energy harvesting/energy storage, and environmental protection.

We look forward to welcome you for the 20th anniversary of the ISEPD in the "Hot Spring City in Korea"!

Sincerely,

Soo Wohn Lee

Asan is located in the central portion and the outermost end of the northwest Chungcheongnam of Korea and has a gateway to the metropolitan area and Chungcheongnam. North gokgyocheon to the documents that constitute the hilly low mountain belonging to the yeomaek charyeong Mountains rises in the mountains of the south, and its basin forms a plain, integrated in sapgyocheon flows in Asan.

Smart Asan (SMART ASAN)

Language meaning Smart (SMART) is a clever, neat, nifty that clever, clever, but interpreted in a variety of means, such as refined, with advanced scientific advances in symbolic artificial intelligence, or AI technology, the world's largest LCD complex it symbolizes the high-tech industry in the city of Asan.


「Cheonan」is a Korean acronym of Cheonhadaean, and traditionally it used to be called as 'Dosol,' meaning 'the best place to live in'. The city is located at the heart of Korea and is a hub of transportation that leads to all three provinces in the South. Cheonan has a perfect harmony between the rural and urban area, making it a Combined Urban-Rural City.

History

Cheonan has a long history and tradition as an area of human settlement since the prehistoric times. This is attested by the profusion of cultural properties and historical sites distributed across the city. Cheonan was also the birthplace of a number of patriots who fought for the independence of Korea and freedom of its people, and their legacies and inspirational stories are carried on here.

Cheonan has long been considered the "heart of the Korean peninsula" exerting a strong impact on the national well-being. In addition, it was a gathering place for people and goods from Chungcheong-do, Jeolla-do and Gyeongsang-do provinces, and culture and the arts flourished centering on this region. As a result, many forms of the arts and entertainment as well as the regional cuisine underwent substantial development.

City Brand

The letter C, the first letter of Cheonan, describes the image of heaven, earth and human. It shows an enterprising spirit with oval shape and represents the central city transportation, education and culture.

The mascot of Cheonan, is based on the spirit and idea of the martyr Yu Gwansun, a model figure expressing Cheonan's source of life, value of loyalty, which increases the pride of Cheonan. This particular figure showing the universal facial features of Korea, expresses the courage and dignity of Cheonan

History

Located at the heart of the Korean Peninsula, Seoul has always been an important strategic point throughout the centuries in terms of defense and the economy, from one kingdom to the next. The three kingdoms of Baekje, Goguryeo, and Silla (BCE 57 – CE 688) all fought over the area that is now Korea's capital. Indeed, whichever kingdom claimed Seoul became the dominant power. The Joseon Dynasty (1392 – 1910) declared Seoul its capital, a role that Seoul still plays to this day. E-BOOK: SEOUL - A Journey through 2000 Years of History

City Brand

Between people, there is Seoul.

Between "you" and "I," among citizens, and among people all around the world… Seoul is at the center of all relationships.

Seoul is a city where diverse nationalities and generations, mountains and rivers, ancient palaces and skyscrapers, and all disparate elements coexist in harmony.

Seoul fills the gap between the two dots, which represent passion and relaxation.

The red dot next to "I" signifies passion, while the blue dot next to "U" symbolizes relaxation. Seoul is what allows everything to coexist in harmony, from "my heated passion" to "your calm relaxation."

The Korean letter "ㅇ" and English letter "O" are brought together as one.

The letter "O" in "SEOUL" is expressed as the Korean letter "ㅇ," illustrating the pride of Koreans and highlighting Seoul's coexistence with the rest of the world. The Korean letter "ㅇ" is also the same shape as the traditional Korean door handle. Therefore, it also suggests that "you and I knock on the door to Seoul and walk in together."

Sun Moon University (SMU) is located at the center of Tangjung Crystal Valley and Asan New City, in the central region of Korea. It is five minutes away from the KTX (Korean Express Train) Cheonan-Asan Station. SMU has a beautiful campus, excellent faculty members and state-of-the-art educational facilities. By ensuring a 40% room occupancy rate for registered students in the dormitory, Sun Moon provides the conditions for students to concentrate on their studies in a peaceful environment. Sun Moon University makes every effort to nurture young leaders with sound character and morality to lead the 21st century. In addition to character education, Sun Moon is committed to professional education equipped with the languages and technologies that are essential prerequisites for leading the global community. SMU also offers internship programs to strengthen industrial & academic cooperation with local businesses in an effort to broaden the window of opportunity for the employment of the graduates.
