Welcome to the 2016 URSI Asia-Pacific Radio Science Conference!
On behalf of the organizing committee of the URSI AP-RASC 2016, it is a great pleasure and an honor to extend to you our warmest welcome and invite you to the 2016 URSI Asia-Pacific Radio Science Conference to be held in Seoul, South Korea from August 21~25, 2016.

AP-RASC is a triennial international conference in the field of radio science, where experts from all over the world gather to share their knowledge and experience, and to encourage scientific exchange and fellowship amongst industry colleagues and professionals globally. We would like to invite many participants from different cultures and continents, representing Europe, South and North America, Oceania, Africa, and Asia. Although Korea is hosting the URSI AP-RASC 2016, I believe that each and every one of you is the real host.

The scientific program will provide an opportunity for participants to exchange new ideas and information on many important issues in radio science and related issues. High-standard general lectures will be provided by outstanding scholars invited both from academia and industry. This conference will be an occasion for participants to make new acquaintances and strengthen existing friendships. Also, the technical exhibitions promise to be another highlight of the conference. You will be able to see and come in direct contact with the latest innovations in radio science and related industries.

Korea is covered with beautiful hills and fields, where a unique archival culture has bloomed and grown. The URSI AP-RASC 2016 will be a chance not only to introduce Korean archival culture which has blossomed over the last 5,000 years, but also to share the results of a recent archival cultural renaissance and to contribute to the development of humanity’s archival culture. The URSI AP-RASC 2016 will be held with a fresh cultural festival and events composed of various programs which accompanying family members may also enjoy.

We are confident that this conference will offer much to see, learn, and take away as long-lasting memories, and we invite you to participate in this wonderful experience.

Thank you for your continued interest and support, and we look forward to welcoming you to the URSI AP-RASC 2016 in Seoul, Korea!
