About the Workshop
Faculty members of Gwangju Institute of Science and Technolgy (GIST) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) are invited to present their recent research results at the 7th GIST-Caltech Workshop on Innovative Research. This workshop is intended to provide GIST and Caltech faculty members with a chance to present their research interests for the Caltech-GIST Faculty Research Collaboration Grant.
See : About Collaboration Grants 2019

Past GIST-Caltech workshops have received much attention from faculty members of both campuses and have been successfully held at GIST and Caltech. To promote the participation of faculty members from both campuses, the 7th GIST-Caltech workshop will be held at GIST on November 12-13 this year.

Presentations by Caltech faculty members may be given either in person or via video conferencing. (Caltech faculty members who currently hold collaboration project grants (PIs) or who applying for the grant for the first time if they attend the workshop to give an oral presentations, will have their travel and accommodation expenses covered.)

The faculty members of GIST and Caltech who would like to present at the 7th GIST-Caltech Workshop on Innovative Research (including the PIs of all current projects) are requested to register and submit the ‘Speaker Information’ on-line by October 8th.
