The conference location, Jeju Island, known as the "Island of the Gods," is selected as one of "New7Wonders of Nature (http://www.new7wonders.com/)." Jeju island is a volcanic island, 130 km from the southern coast of Korea, and a favorite honeymoon destination. The largest island and smallest province in Korea, the island has a surface area of 1,846 sqkm. A central feature of Jeju is Hallasan, the tallest mountain in South Korea and a dormant volcano, which rises 1,950 m above sea level. 360 satellite volcanoes are around the main volcano.

Relatively isolated from the rest of the world, the island’s nature has been well preserved in its prehistoric state. That is why traveling to Jeju is to travel back in time. Jeju’s natural environment has been preserved as best as possible. The fantastically shaped rocks decorating the seashores, the hundreds of Oreums(secondary volcanos) and the rarest species of flora around the Baekrok-dam lake are all treasures waiting to be discovered by visitors. One cannot see Jeju unless one looks. It is like seeing only trees before entering a forest. You can get more information about Jeju island at http://www.ijto.or.kr/english/.
