Welcome to the 20th KOCSEA Technical Symposium!

It is my great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the KOCSEA Technical Symposium 2019. This annual symposium is our flagship event gathering many Korean researchers and professionals in a wide range of computer and information technology fields. This year’s main theme is Intelligent Computing. I have no doubt that the KOCSEA members in the U.S. and South Korea have become the core driving forces for advancing theories and practices in intelligent computing and related areas. Through this symposium, the participants will be provided with a great opportunity to meet and network with fellow Korean and Korean-American computer scientists and engineers.

This year we have invited very special keynote speakers who are leading scholars in artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, data security, multimedia, and computer science education. Please make sure that you attend all the keynote speeches and learn about the cutting-edge technology and research.

The technical sessions cover topic areas that are key to the future of intelligent computing such as AI/Machine Learning, Security, Big Data and Data Science. This year especially we put an emphasis on a professional networking opportunity by assigning more time for lightning talks and posters than any other symposium in the past. We are sure that these times will be valuable for everyone and hope that they will be fruitful for all.

We would like to appreciate our sponsors: Samsung Research, KSEA, KUSCO, KAKAO, Hyundai Motors, Samsung Card, Coupang, Joon-Ang Ilbo, Pacific City Bank, LG Electronics, and Dr. Chung Moon Jung family. The 20th KOCSEA Symposium and Korean CS Student Scholarship wouldn’t be possible without them.

Organizing a one-and-a-half day event like this requires quite some time and effort. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the organizing committee members and volunteers who have devoted their time and energy for this wonderful annual event.

I hope you enjoy the symposium and make many meaningful connections for your research, teaching and career in your fields.
