ICISTS KAIST 2014 poster

Close your eyes and imagine a life without science and technology, a life without cars, electricity, and the Internet. Having trouble? Now open your eyes to the real world with science and technology: Biochemical weapons wreaking havoc in Syria, the disaster at Fukushima poisoning the Earth. This ironic twist, however, often goes unseen—a failure to recognize the nature of science.

You realize that science and technology possess the power to shift entire paradigms, and as generators of such an impetus, that they require much inspection. Are you sure, though? How much do you actually know about science?

And so, ICISTS-KAIST 2014 asks: Is science truly leading progress?

Meeting its 10th anniversary, ICISTS-KAIST 2014 will scrutinize science on top of a social and cultural context and pave way for discussions that envision a better future. On a wonderful five-day journey beginning on August 4th, KAIST campus will once again open doors for future leaders to meet people and get inspired.

Meet People, Get Inspired
