The scientific sessions were held at EXCO exhibition and convention centre in Daegu. All Long-Term and Cross-Disciplinary Fellows, Young Investigator and Program Grant holders and Career Development Awardees were invited. In all there were 23 oral presentations and 93 poster presentations. In addition to the 168 registered participants invited by HFSP, there were about 30 scientists from Korean institutes and universities. The generous hospitality of the Korean hosts was very much appreciated by the delegates and the evening at the Hyanggyo Confucian Academy was a great success.
