Korean‑Swiss Science Day 

Nano-Tera.ch Joint Switzerland-Korea Symposium on

Novel trends at the frontier of computing and electronics

7th-8th May, 2013 - BC420, EPFL

A yearly joint Swiss-Korean Symposium alternately held in Switzerland and Korea has been organized since 2010. The 2013 edition is hosted by EPFL and will bring together major scientists from Korea and Switzerland to present their research, addressing the following key topics:

    Bio-sensing and Health management
    Energy-aware electronics
    Architectures and networks for the Internet of Things
    Emerging devices

The Symposium will take place over 2 days including oral presentations as well as poster/networking sessions, which will be a prime opportunity for researchers to interact and exchange ideas and allow Swiss and Korean students to present their research.
