Mathematics is developed from the beginning of human history and now is the base and fundamental tools for sciences and engineering including social and psycology, .... Pure mathematics including number theory, algebra, topology, geometry and analysis has their own prospect and applied mathematics including numerical analysis, probability and statistics support and gave fundamental methods for research and developments for sciences and engineering. Currently, developing important methods are artificial intelligent, machine learning and numerical simulation by using high performance computer. Physics, which was born to describe and understand nature, is one of the most fundamental subjects for humanity. The physics has affected to various other areas, e.g. electronics, mechanics, and chemistry, and had crucial networks with them. To keep up-to-date with the latest progress, look at the problems from different perspectives, and establish international networks., Physics and Mathematics Group plans to bring together Korean and European Scientists and Engineers by organizing following sessions at EKC 2019. In the Talk Sessions, experts and key persons in the selected research area (listed below) will introduce the field and discuss current main issues and new developments. - Session 1. Progress on the pure mathematics in Europe and Korea - Session 2. Machine learning and Artificial intelligent and its applications - Session 3. Numerical simulation on HPC for Plasma physics and Fusion energy In addition to these sessions, delegates are also encouraged to participate in the sessions of their own interests organized by other Science & Technology Divisions. Through these events, organizers of EKC 2019 wish to provide an unparalleled opportunity for Korean and European Scientists and Engineers to establish a valuable and prolonged network.

Humanity is currently dealing with many environmental problems. They are exacerbated by the sprawl of cities, which is accompanied by the growth of urban population and an increase of elderly people, as well as land use changes. For example, these problems relate to (i) causes and consequences of climate change including global warming and embedded severe heat waves, (ii) urban sprawl, as well as (iii) air and water pollution. They affect organisms such as humans, plants and animals as well as materials and socio-economic sectors. Earth and environmental scientists and engineers are interested in methods and data, which enable impact-related comparative analyses of processes and resulting phenomena that are typical of past and future effects of human environmental activities. They aim at the development and implementation of solutions to a variety of current environmental issues. In the "Earth Science & Environmental Engineering" sessions at EKC 2019, delegates from Europe and Korea will discuss the main issues, core trends and collaboration opportunities in the field of earth science and the environment with experts and key persons from diverse sectors including industry, governments, local authorities, research associations and organizations, as well as academia. The following specific sessions are focused on "Earth Science & Environmental Engineering" at EKC 2019: 1) Adaptation to climate change in cities 2) Current issues of urban air quality 3) Current issues of urban water 4) Waste treatment and management 5) Circular economy and sustainability 6) Current environment-related topics on atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere 7) Poster presentation Through these events, the "Earth Science & Environmental Engineering" group offers delegates a valuable opportunity to create a new network between Europe and Korea.

As there is greater pressure for sustainable development, the requirements from the built environment are becoming more demanding. There is broad agreement that densely populated urban areas should be more sustainable rural areas. However, whilst over half the planet’s population lives in cities, they account for more than 75% of the consumption of non-renewable resources, causing climate change. Built Environment group will take a new perspective on sustainable built environment and strategical approaches responding to climate change. The sessions aim to bring together built environment professionals, climate and energy researchers, policy experts and government officials to discuss recent research and works. The sessions of the Built Environment will allow delegate to increase their knowledge and skills related to sustainable development, building design and the performance of buildings and materials.

In recent years Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has drastically evolved in multifold directions at an accelerated pace. Advancements of semiconductors, communication technologies, front-end/back-end software engineering, and various engineering fields are intertwined together yielding emerging technologies, which even expedite development and collaboration. Various relevant R&BD topics attract multiple interdisciplinary societies, seeing vast amount of opportunities in research and business. Innovative companies and research organizations successfully show up their challenging ideas, which create new user experiences, thereby making digital personalization come true. Some keywords in these regards include: artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, IoT, AR/VR, blockchain, etc. It goes without saying that high-speed networks and ultra-scale data centers in systems and associated components in subsystems play essential roles as enablers to realize such technologies. In the following sessions, we aim to cover recent R&D activities in EU and Korea on the state-of-the-art ICT while discussing technological hurdles and on-going evolutions in it . Topics mainly covered are AI, various sensors and their relevant technologies, 5G, wired and wireless communications, and high-frequency applications.
