The second session started after Prof. T. H. Park (President, AICT), Prof. S. E. Kim (Dean, Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology, Seoul National University), and Director General Y. Nishimura (RCAST) gave speeches as opening addresses. For the second session, four professors were invited from RCAST by AICT: Prof. H. Suga, (Chemical Biotechnology), Prof. A.
