Who We Are
Our mission is to spread the idea of science – and technology – integrated society.
Today’s society, despite the general population’s disinterest in science and technology, values interdisciplinary minds who can merge science & technology and other academic fields. Such is because the integration of the seemingly different disciplines may uncover possible solutions to the problems of modern society. The problems and inconveniences that rise from the rapid development of technology, such as internet addiction and personal security, can only be resolved when multiple disciplines come together to create a new perspective.
Hold an international conference on the integration of science, technology, and society.
Become a platform for an international network.
Provide inspiration, insight, and guidance to the leaders of tomorrow.
How do we achieve the ideal merger of varied knowledge? Simply having motley of unrefined knowledge cannot be the solution—for example, decreasing the number of internet addicts require more than understanding psychology and IT technology. To achieve a genuine integration, scientists, sociologists, and artists at the frontier of different disciplines should constantly cross the academic borders, challenge the conventional thinking, and experiment with the unfamiliar.
What We Do
We work through cooperation of college students from diverse backgrounds.
ICISTS-KAIST proposes the consilience of science & technology and other disciplines as a solution to various social problems. Some topics will include truly original implementation of the latest technology into humanities and some will pose controversial ideas. At ICISTS-KAIST, regardless of the their academic backgrounds, delegates will be able experience first-hand that integration and convergence of various fields will lead to new insight.
