    Keynote Speakers & Invited Speakers

    Keynote Speaker I

    Prof. Chun-Yi Su, Concordia University, Canada

    Dr. Chun-Yi Su received his Ph.D. degrees in control engineering from South China University of Technology in 1990. After a seven-year stint at the University of Victoria, he joined Concordia University in 1998, where he is currently a Professor of Mechanical, Industrial & Aerospace Engineering and holds the Concordia University Research Chair in Control. He has also held several short-time visiting positions including a Chang Jiang Chair Professorship by China's Ministry of Education and JSPS Invitation Fellowship from Japan.
    Dr. Su's research covers control theory and its applications to various mechanical systems, with a recent focus on control of systems involving hysteresis nonlinearities. He has made fundamental contribution to modeling and control of nonlinear systems involving hysteresis nonlinearities. He developed some fundamental properties for the early development of constrained robotic control. He is the author or co-author of over 400 publications, which have appeared in journals, as book chapters and in conference proceedings.
    Dr. Su has served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology. He has been on the Editorial Board of several journals, including IFAC's Mechatronics. He served for many conferences as an organizing committee member.

    Useful Information


    Foreign nationals entering the country are required to pass an inspection conducted by an immigration official at the port of entry.
    A Republic of Korea (ROK) visa is a consul’s recommendation for approval of a foreign national’s application for entry. A foreign national holding an ROK visa may fail to obtain entry permission if he/she fails to meet the entry requirements. An ROK visa may be obtained at a South Korean embassy.
    A foreign national applying for an ROK visa must submit the required documents (which differ depending on the status of sojourn) to the South Korean embassy in one’s respective country.

    There are two types of ROK visas: single-entry and multiple-entry.
    Single-entry visa: Valid for three months from the date of issuance.
    Multiple-entry visa: Valid for the designated period following the date of issuance.
    •Status of sojourn relating to diplomacy (A-1), official business (A-2) or treaties (A-3): Not more than 3 years.
    •Status of sojourn relating to temporary workers (H-2): Not more than 5 years.
    •Status of sojourn relating to an official treaty: As agreed in the treaty.
    •Status of sojourn set under reciprocity or in consideration of national interest: As determined by the Minister of Justice.

    Cancellation or change of visa
    The entry visa for a foreign national may be cancelled or changed by the Minister of Justice in any of the following cases.
    •When the guarantor has withdrawn his/her guarantee or the relevant foreign national no longer has a guarantor;
    •When it transpires that the foreign national has obtained the visa by fraudulent or dishonest means;
    •When the relevant foreign national has violated the conditions of issuance of the visa;
    •When a serious situation has occurred which makes it impossible to maintain the current visa status;
    •When the relevant foreign national is in violation of a law, including The Immigration Control Act, or fails to comply with a justifiable instruction of an immigration official. The Justice Minister may, under Article 79 of the Immigration Control Act,, have the foreign national or applicant come to a government office to listen to his/her explanation of the situation concerning cancellation or change of visa when judged necessary.
    •When asking the said person to come to a government office to provide a verbal explanation of his/her situation, the Justice Minister should inform the said person of the reason for a cancellation or change of visa and the hour/date and office at which presence his/her presence has been requested at least seven days in advance.

    Entry without a visa
    Foreign nationals falling under the following category, including nationals of a country that has signed a visa waiver agreement with the ROK, may enter Korea without a visa.
    •A person entering the ROK within the designated period after obtaining or being exempted from a re-entry permit;
    •An eligible national of a country that has signed a visa waiver agreement with the ROK;
    •A person entering the ROK for purposes related to international friendship or national interest of the ROK after obtaining a separate entry permit;
    •A person re-entering the ROK within the designated period after obtaining a refugee travel document.
