Keynote Speech Title: The sustainable development of renewable energy in the future
Abstract: Due to climate change with increasing greenhouse gas emissions, various natural disasters such as floods, heavy snowfalls, and heat waves are frequent more and more. Since the industrial revolution, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has exceeded with the concentration of 410 ppm recently and is expected to be increased continuously in the future. Since the Paris Convention on climate change, there is a growing need for the development of renewable energy that does not generate greenhouse gases. In this study, the current state of energy generation and recent trends in greenhouse gas emissions were reviewed, and the characteristics of major renewable energy sources were illustrated. In addition, solutions to the problems caused during the practical use of renewable energy and sustainable development in the future were suggested.

Dr. Hyo Choi is meteorologist, environmental scientist and physical oceanographer with over 40 years experiences in numerical modeling researches as Overseas invited senior researcher by Korean Government of Korea Ocean Research & Development Institute (KORDI (now, KIOST) of KAIST), Ministry of Science & Technology, a high-level Researcher (nominated by President of Korean Government) of National Fisheries & Research Development Institute (NFRDI), Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Fisheries, and Full Professor of Gangneung-Wonju National University. He obtained 2 Ph.D. degrees from Dept. of Civil Engineering, University of Texas at Austin, USA (1984) and College of Environmental Sciences, Peking University, Beijing; China (2004). His research interests cover a variety of fields in Meteorology, Environmental Science & Engineering and Physical Oceanography. He acted as not only Interpreter and Investigator of Korea Antarctic Scientific Expedition Team for two times (1985~1987), but also Korean Government Representative for Inter-governmental Meetings on Antarctic Treaty and Science Policies. He has been President of Korean Environmental Sciences Society (2002~2003), President and Vice President of Asia-Oceania Geosciences Society, Singapore (Atmospheric Section-60 Nations), Director General of Donghae Coastal Region Research Institute (1989~1991) and Dean of the Graduate School, Gangneung-Wonju National University, Korea (2009~2011, 2011~2012). In present, he is Director General of Atmospheric & Oceanic Disaster Research Institute, Korea (2014~Present), High-end Foreign Expert of South China Sea Institute of Oceanology, China (CAS; 2015~Presen), and also acting as Editor-in-Chief of 13 international journals (USA, Singapore, India) and Editor of 25 ones (USA, UK, Italy, Canada, etc.) in Environmental Pollution, Disaster, Agriculture, Food sciences, Water resources, Lake and rivers, GIS, Physical sciences, Oceanography, Fishery and Meteorology.

Keynote Speech Title: Formation of Fog Associated with Cold Front Passage in the Steep Eastern Mountainous Coast of Korea
Abstract: The formation of fog in the Korean eastern mountainous coast was investigated, using a 3D-WRF-3.6 model from 00UTC October 26~28, 2003. As the cold front passing by the Bohai Sea and stretching from Manchuria to Sandoing peninsula moved eastward, south-westerly surface wind ahead of the front became more intensified by supplying more moisture from the Yellow Sea surface into the low atmosphere within 2km height, resulting in the formation of big stratus clouds from the Yellow Sea to the west of Mt Taegullyung near Gangeung city. For daytime, as convective boundary layer (CBL) was developed and extended from the ground surface to 1km height, upward motion of air from the surface could force the clouds to remain in the top of CBL without fog near the surface, but nighttime cooling of the ground surface making stable stability induced downward motion of air with clouds from the low atmosphere to the surface and also air near the surface should be cooled down to be condensed to form nocturnal surface inversion fog, combining with the daytime uplifted clouds downward within 1.2km height in the west basin of the mountain top. However, strong downslope wind over 16m/s along its eastern slope dissipated both cloud and fog on its slope, due to adiabatic heating of air by compressing air to heat up the cooled air parcel, resulting in neither fog nor cloud in the coastal inland and sea. In the open sea, a big cloud cluster was produced vertically by uplifting warm moist air from the sea surface into 6km height ahead of cold front.

Keynote Speaker III

Prof. Denny K. S. Ng
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, Malaysia

Professor Ir. Dr. Denny K. S. Ng is Head of Business Engagement and Innovation Services (BEIS), The University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus. He is also Professor of Process Design and Integrated Biorefinery at the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering and Founding Director of Centre of Sustainable Palm Oil Research (CESPOR). Prof. Ng is well-published and well-cited (over 150 papers with an h-index of 30) and presented more than 180 papers in various conferences. He was the recipient of 1st World Wu Clans Excellence Award 2017, Ten Outstanding Young Malaysian Award (TOYM) 2017 (Scientific and Technological Development), Junior Chamber International (JCI); Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) Young Engineer Award 2015; Three Outstanding Young Persons of Negeri Sembilan (3OYP.NS) Awards, JCI 2014; Global IChemE Young Chemical Engineer of the Year 2012, etc. Other than the abovementioned personal awards, Prof Ng also received various awards from professional bodies and institutions on his great achievements and contributions to the society. Apart from focusing on research and development (R&D), Prof. Ng also applied his R&D output in industrial consultation projects. Prof Ng is also currently executive director for a spin off company of university, Nottingham Green Technologies Sdn. Bhd., which mainly commercialise the development technologies to the industry.

Keynote Speech Title: Impact of Rainfall on Sustainable Oil Palm Plantation Management via Input-Output Optimisation Model
Abstract: Oil palm trees require resources such as water, fertilisers and sunlight to grow fresh fruit bunches (FFBs) for crude palm oil (CPO) productions. In order to fulfill the increasing global demand for CPO, sustainable growth for FFB must be attained. A good plantation management system ensures that sufficient resources are supplied in a balanced proportion to maintain and improve the yield of FFB. The aim of this study is to model and optimise an oil palm plantation via input-output optimisation model, generating maximum economic yield with a fixed plantation size under limited rainfall availability. Installation of water irrigation system to supply sufficient water and greenhouse gases emission in the plantation are considered. The proposed approach is presented with a 13,737 ha plantation case study in Malaysia. Based on the optimised result, water irrigation system increases the FFB production from 270,000 to 343,000 t/y. In addition, 0.22 t CO2eq/t FFB (or 74,600 t CO2eq/y) of greenhouse gases emission could be reduced. This shows that the sustainability of a plantation can be improved significantly with proper management system. 






Seoul, South Korea

Seoul, officially the Seoul Special Metropolitan City – is the capital and largest metropolis of the Republic of Korea (commonly known as South Korea). As the 4th most economically powerful city in the world, measured by GDP, Seoul is one of Asia's major centers of culture, entertainment, and research, with additional strengths in the arts, commerce, education, finance, media, services, and tourism. Seoul forms the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, the 5th most populous in the world, which is also one of the most populous urban agglomerations and includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, altogether home to roughly half of the country's population..
