The 21st [International Conference on Science and Technology], a gathering of Korean scholars active in Russia, Korea, and the CIS(Former Soviet Union), was held from August 26 to 28 last year, ’30 years of scientific networking!'(Thirty years of Networking in Science!) was held at Susevsky Holiday Inn in Moscow on the theme . Last year, the 20th conference was held online in the aftermath of Covid-19, but this year it was held on and offline at the same time.
This conference is held annually for the purpose of exchanging academic achievements and creative ideas of Korean scientists and experts in each field, and to establish a place for academic exchange through cooperation and communication. As the subject of participation is an international academic competition for Russian, Korean and CIS(Former Soviet Union) scholars, the organizers are vast. THE COUNCIL of Russian Scientists(АКSTS, President: CHO Kwang-chun), the Council of Kazakh Scientists(KAKHАК, President: MOON GRIGORI), the Council of Uzbek Scientists(ТINBO, President: VALERY PARK), the Federation of Korean Science and Technology Organizations(KOFST, President: Lee Woo-il), the Center for Cooperation in Science and Technology(KORUSTEC, President: Seo Gil-WON)and the MOSCOW Koryo People’s Youth Movement(President: BAE PAVEL)are THE MAIN ORGANIZERS of the CONFERENCE.
In 2021, the 21st International Conference on Science and Technology in Korea will introduce the entire landscape on the ground, such as 1) The chapter of academic cooperation and communication that continues through generations, 2) 8,300 km of passion and longing, and 3) The search for and expectation of practical cooperation, not theory.
First, we look forward to the future, the chapter of academic cooperation and communication that continues through the generations.
▶ This year, this conference was a place of cooperation and communication with generations. Thirty years ago, the first generation of leaders who founded the Council of Scientists in Russia, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, and the younger generation who are currently working as professionals in their fields, or are studying, came together to become a meaningful academic conference. The second photo in the first line is of teenagers who attended as helpers this year. Most of them have gone to college this year or are in the 11th grade. On the second day of the dinner, President Cho Kwangchun delivered a letter of thanks to them. The first photo below shows Professor Natalia Kim of Novosibirsk University, the first generation of the Russian Council of Scientists, thanking the organizers of the competition.
In August 2019, he attended the first conference at the invitation of the Council of Russian Scientists. At that time, the Humanities division gave a presentation on the topic of » Korean Language and History education through Koryo-in identity.» Current professors and experts active in pedagogy, sociology, philosophy, and history in Russia and former Soviet cities attended the Humanities division meeting and shared a variety of opinions. The average age of the scholars who presented at that time was about 50. At that time, the young scholars who were making the presentation were on hand. The presentation, based on decades of research and experience, was deep and interesting, but the old woman was a little curious to see if this meeting could continue after generations of them. Since 2019, the Council of Russian Scientists has founded and is currently active in the «Meeting of Koryans Youth», which consists of Koryans young people who are currently studying or already active in their specialties. Three days before the start of the conference, the Young Generation/Professional Forum(YPF)was held in the same place in Moscow. About 50 young scholars and students participated in this forum. On August 26, the last day of the forum, we visited the Samsung AI Center in Moscow and took a direct tour of the developing Korean advanced technology scene.
Generation after generation means there is life. 21 years ago, when all conditions were poor, the first generation of Koryo scholars organized this conference with a sense of mission. The start would surely have been feeble. Maybe no one expected this cooperation and communication to take place for more than 20 years. But the vitality of the Goryeo scholars was as strong as their viability. Beyond Russia, former Soviet Goryeo scholars could begin history with sacrifice and service.
During the opening ceremony, a special order was held. It was time to memorialize Alexei Tso and Ten Edith Barisovich, who died of Covid-19 this year. Taevarasovich is a first-generation jarer scholar who served as president of the Conference until 2018. Many of the acquaintances who remember them shared their grief and commitment as they remembered their time together and tried to cooperate and communicate more enthusiastically together. It was comforting that there were many generations who were preparing and hoping for the future in memory of their seniors.
Second, 8,300 km, fly towards passion and longing. These are the future.
The highlight of the annual [International Conference on Science and Technology in Korea] is the meeting of each sector. In the meantime, it is time to present the topics you have studied and listen to the various opinions of experts in the field. Russian debate culture is somewhat radical(?). Questions and assessments are straight and clear. As mentioned earlier, this year, the presentation of young scholars in their 20s stood out. At the end of the two-hour meeting, we also took a commemorative photo together. First-generation scholars also attended meetings and actively exchanged opinions. During the break, he approached me personally and shared what he had not been able to announce. The serious conversation of a young scholar in his early 30s(Professor Kim Yevgeny)and Professor Noh(Professor Park Baleri), who is retiring in his 70s, is the most meaningful landscape of this conference.
This conference was held in the continuing Covid-19 city. Like last year, there was a lot to hold online, so we decided to face it. How many people could attend face-to-face was the biggest concern. Moscow residents do not have problems, but Russia is the country with the largest territory in the world. On the day of the competition, one of the most pleasant people I met at the venue was Professor Kim Yevgeny, who flew 8,300 km to attend. Besides, I wasn’t alone. In Khabarovsk, I met Dmitry, who majored in Korean-related international relations and was studying Korean hard. A few Russian attendees stood out in a number of Korean faces, especially the Korean pronunciation was surprisingly good, and they had a lot of conversations. This year’s conference was attended by about 50 scholars from Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, and Novosibirsk, close to Moscow. Of the total 139 people who attended on and offline, 6 attended from South Korea, 10 from Kazakhstan and 7 from Uzbekistan. There are only two reasons why they flew without every dozens of hours, longing and passion. The many, but realistically considered scholars who gather in one place are a very small number in the vast Russian land. I remember the time and sweat that they struggled to handle education and leadership in mainstream society. They are in desperate need of this sense of belonging, homogeneity, and encouragement and cheer. This is the driving force that allows them to fly 8,300 km. Professor Kim Yevgeny said, » How did you get this far?»He asked. The answer was simple. «I came because I wanted to see you.»Throughout the conference, there was no laughter on Professor Kim Yevgeny’s face. Professor Kim Najezda attended the opening and closing ceremonies of the academic Conference in Novosibirsk. Young scholars in their early 30s. Passion and youth, Professor Kim Yevgeny is the future of this conference.
3. Seeking and expecting actual cooperation, not theory
The 21st International Conference on Science and Technology began with a greeting from the President of the Russian Council of Scientists(AKSTS) Cho Kwang-chun. The Moscow-based Council is a non-profit organization established in 1991 with the aim of building professional ties between Russian diaspora scholars and further developing academic cooperation between Korean scientists and experts in the field living in Korea and the Former Soviet Union. Following the greeting of President Cho Kwang-chun, Seo Gil-won, Director of the Hallo Science and Technology Cooperation Center, which is leading the development of science and technology in Korea and Russia, congratulated him. We sincerely thank the organizers of Russia, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan for doing their best to ensure that this tournament can be held in the Corona Pandemic. There were about 10 full lectures during this conference. Lectures were conducted in Korean(interpreter provided), English, and Russian. In addition, the lecture was conducted face-to-face and non-face.

One of the lectures that received great reception was entitled ‘Galaxy UpCycling — holographic imaging’by Valkova Tachiana, who is currently working for Samsung in Moscow. In particular, it was impressive that the younger generation listened to the lectures with focus. After a theoretical lecture related to this topic, the instructor prepared and provided participants with practical activities to support the lecture. Of the many lectures at this conference, it can be regarded as the most focused time for attendees. The feedback from the attendees was also the best. The identity of this conference is academic sharing and communication. However, gradually beyond theory, there is a desperate search for ways in which each individual’s academic achievements will have an impact in the real life realm.
The highlight of this conference is the discussion time with each discipline. This year, the meeting was divided into 1) Mathematics and IT, 2) Biochemistry and medical, 3) Chemistry and new materials, 4) Physics and earth sciences, 5) History, education, and humanities. This year, the hallmark is the attendance of 20 scholars engaged in each field. It became a meaningful academic discussion venue where the freshness of the new generation of scholars and the dendrochronology of senior scholars who have contributed in this field for the rest of their lives and have already retired or are in the future is a blend of fantasy.

The 21st International Conference on Science and Technology in Korea, held for two nights and three days from August 26th to 28th, 2021, ended in Sungwangri. Overall, the attendance was very good, and there was intense sharing and communication every hour. What’s more, there is no news of Corona 19 confirmation among the attendees. A large academic conference in Moscow, with more than 2,500 confirmators a day, seemed reckless in some ways to debate whether to hold it. However, in the Russian situation of coexistence with Corona, the organizers made the best choice. The 21st Conference was a memorable time in many ways. Above all, it was an occasion to ask more clear questions about the direction and goals that the Korean Science and Technology Council should walk in the future. We strongly support the Korean Science and Technology Council as generations coexist and move towards one goal. Next year, the 22nd International Conference on Science and Technology in Korea is expected to be held in a safer environment.
