  We invite you to the Second International Workshop on EEWS, whose theme is the “Effectiveness of EEWS as the Growth Engines”. The problems related to Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability (EEWS) of natural resources are of the utmost importance in sustaining human habitat in the twenty-first century and beyond. Recognizing the challenges of problems associated with Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability, KAIST has launched a multi-disciplinary research and education initiative, entitled "The EEWS Initiative", to explore new research areas and innovate technologies in alliance with the leading research institutes and industrial corporations.

  As a platform of exchanging the research ideas and outcomes on EEWS, the Office of EEWS Initiative organized the international workshop since 2008. The theme of EEWS 2009 that will be held on Sept. 22nd and 23rd is “Effectiveness of EEWS as the Growth Engines”. EEWS Workshop 2009 consists of eight plenary talks and 12 sessions which covers very hot issues in EEWS technology. You can see more information on the EEWS webpage (http://eews.kaist.ac.kr).

  We hope we can see you at this workshop that will be a very fruitful congregation in identifying the economic feasibility and business opportunity of EEWS technologies

Thank you
