General information

Jihye Jung (Ms.): with Cc: (Kang-Tae Kim)

Subject: The KSCV9 registration

3.  Arrival and departure dates.


  Upon receiving such application, the conference will reply as soon as possible.  The deadline for application is June 1, 2012 (6 weeks prior to the conference).  At the moment, we expect about 80 participants. Please act early, as approximately 55 slots have already been taken.


Expected arrival: Afternoon of Sunday the 15th of July.

Expected departure: Afternoon of Friday, the 20th of July

Extra stay: Possible at a discounted rate---please ask the organization.


Dinner: The organization recommends that the participants gather in groups and explore the local restaurants nearby (as there are many, within the enjoyable walking distance). Find some Korean students and young researchers in the conference. The conference arranges the banquet on Wednesday—all participants are invited.


Kolon Bus: TBA


From Seoul-Incheon Airport: There are basically 4 methods:


(1) By Express bus (big seats, just one ride to GyeongJu) + taxicab (to the Kolon Hotel): At ICN, ask at the information kiosk in the termianl hall (after passport control and customs); they will tell you when the next buses are coming and where to buy the ticket (41,000 KRW=approx. 41 US dollars).  The bus is not so frequent! (something like one in every two hours plus.)  Off the bus, take a taxi to the Kolon Hotel. (20,000 KRW or so.) Bus takes 4 hrs 30 min approx.  Taxi will take 30-40 minutes.


(2) By A*rex train (ICN-Seoul Station) + KTX bullet train (Seoul Station - ShinGyeongJu Station) + Taxicab (to the Kolon Hotel): At ICN, follow the signs to the train station.  There you can buy the train tickets and follow the instruction. It takes 50 minutes (less than 7 thousand KRW) + 2 hrs and 20 minutes (approx 50,000 KRW) + 40-50 minutes(taxi, 25,000 KRW approx).  The advantage is that the train is practically every hour except the time gap during the lunch and dinner hours. And, everything is on time and fast.


(3) A connection flight from Gimpo Airport to Pohang (100,000 KRW) and take taxi from there (100,000 KRW): At ICN, take a shuttle bus to Gimpo Airport. Bus comes every 10 minutes and the fare is less than 8,000 KRW. It takes approximately 40 minutes.


(4) A connection flight from Gimpo Airport to Ulsan and take a taxicab. (30,000 KRW): Similar.


But I do not recommend the last two options so much, although it is not bad.


From Busan-Gimhae Airport:

At Busan-Gimhae airport, there is a bus line to Gyeong-Ju.  Ask the information booth in the terminal.  The bus might stop at the Kolon Hotel along the way; please ask the driver.  Perhaps you can ask that at the information center as well.  The Bus fare is approximately 10,000 KRW and takes approximately 1 hour and few minutes.  If it arrives to the Bus terminal in GyeongJu, then take a taxicab.



Preparation of lectures: The beam projector is the standard method.  So preparing a PDF file is recommended. On the other hand, the conference will prepare two whiteboards which one can write with markers.


Night session: For the Koreans, there is the KSCV Gwa-Oe session in Korean language, in the evening of Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. These are completely informal and not-at-all mandatory
