YouRS (Young Researchers Society of Korea) is a newly established organization, which consists of self-driven and enthusiastic post-graduate research students. YouRS aims at providing guidance, mentorship, networking and cooperating opportunities to young research students in matters related to their research.

The workshop was aimed at research students, primarily the students of medical sciences and transportation engineering, and new students who have just arrived in Korea. The purpose of this session was to introduce some of the trending topics of the contemporary research; familiarize the participants with the underlying technologies, their potential and future prospects; and guide the research students to the research environment of South Korea.
