Future scholars,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the HOBY Korea International Young Scholars Conference!

HOBY Korea, the host of the conference, has been an exclusive international partner of Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Foundation for the Republic of Korea since 2003 and is currently run by Korean Educational Association for Empowerment of Software.

Knowledge is important in leadership, and it has the power to create common good and value in society.

As a youth leadership organization, HOBY Korea is committed to inspiring young leaders like you to explore your intellectual curiosity and share your knowledge to benefit others. The conference is one of the many platforms that HOBY Korea runs to fulfill this commitment. This interdisciplinary conference will provide you with an opportunity to broaden your knowledge, get ideas and build a network for your future research and collaborations, and learn about cutting-edge scholarship from world class scholars to make the world a better place.

We support the will, passion, and efforts of teenagers who do any kind of research activities regardless of how skilled they are or how significant or small their researches are.

I encourage you to make the most of this opportunity.

Best wishes,
Hwang Hyun-chul, President of HOBY Korea
