Dear all distinguished colleagues,
We are currently living in the 4th industrial revolution era. Artificial intelligence, robotics, biotechnology, and health science take a lead in all aspects of our economy and everyday lives. While various knowledge and technologies have been developed independently in each field in the past, now the academic boundaries and limitations are being overcome through the state-of-the-art interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research. These academic approaches of convergence will provide us with newly added values and knowledge that we have never experienced.
Following up the demand in the new age of convergence, we have launched the “International Society of Biotechnology and Sports Engineering (ISO-BASE)” to bring together experts in sports engineering and biotechnology and help them share new knowledge and encourage interactions. The “International Conference on Biotechnology and Sports Engineering (ICON-BASE) 2019” will be the very first step to lay a firm foundation for the international scholarship community of convergence in the fields of biotechnology and sports engineering. Eventually, we will try our best to become the primary academic organization to boost networking among highly talented researchers worldwide in sports engineering and biotechnology.
Lastly, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank all the committee members and colleagues for your contribution to developing of this new organization. The ISO-BASE will be dedicated to advancement of convergence research in sports engineering and biotechnology, and to make the ISO-BASE be one of the leading academic organizations in the 4th industrial revolution era.
Thank you so very much.
Seung Wook Choi
