The 7th International Symposium on Frontier Technology 23-26 August, 2019

The 7th International Symposium on Frontier Technology at Ambassador City Jomtien, Pattaya, Thailand

Call for Paper


Kochi University of Technology (KUT) started Special Scholarship Program (SSP) in 2003 to support the advanced research of the university by enlisting the help of highly capable doctoral students especially from foreign countries. The Chinese branch and Thai branch of KUT alumni were established in 2006 when the first SSP students graduated. After one year later, the Chinese branch held the first International Symposium on Frontier Technology (ISFT) in Shenyang. At present, around 170 SSP graduates are playing active roles in various academic fields in many countries, and the network has most certainly become larger and larger. ISFT is held every two years to provide a place for the exchange of innovative ideas and cutting-edge information among SSP graduates and many researchers from all around the world. In 2019, the 7th symposium will be held in Thailand, for the first time, to offer the chance to explore international or interdisciplinary collaboration among participants.

NOTICE: ISFT aims to function as an informal workshop which gives researchers an opportunity to disseminate their work and get feedback from the participants without precluding publication elsewhere. It encourages submissions of revised versions of the work to international conferences or refereed journals, and also presentations in ISFT should not be considered republication or results of double submissions of any kind.
