Dear All,

On behalf of DGIST, I welcome all participants of the 16th Asia-Pacific Conference on Giftedness (APCG), which is held in Daegu, Korea from July 30 to August 3, 2020. The theme of the conference is 『Beyond Intelligence: Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Ethical Minds』. There is no doubt that intelligence alone cannot lead one to academic and social success. So the theme is highly timely and meaningful. The young participants are to be actively engaged in pondering over the capabilities that they need beyond intelligence for their successful future.

In particular, I am honored to be able to host the Youth Summit, a festival for gifted students in the Asia-Pacific region at DGIST, a small but strong scientific and technical institution with a high level of academic achievement and quality education. DGIST is thus an absolutely right place where such creative and bright students gather and explore.

Dear Youth Summit participants!

It’s a short festival, but through this event you will be exposed to both various areas of science and technology and Korean culture built upon a long history. DGIST will help you experience and learn as much as possible while staying comfortable and safe. Dear gifted students in Asia-Pacific, welcome to Daegu.

Thank you.

Young Kuk, Ph. D.

President of the DGIST
