Background

The Daejeon Section is part of Region 10 and will have representation at the Korea Council. The Section was formed on 17 June 1991.

The IEEE Daejeon Section has been making the second largest Section in Korea over a number of decades since its foundation. The Daejeon Section has been accelerating many accomplishments such as hosting and sponsoring technical conferences and encouraging student activities. As of 2007, the Daejeon Section has over 1200 members. The fact that 60% of them are the student members shows that the possibility of increase not only in member numbers but also in exuberant activities.

Late 1970's, as Daedeok Science Town formed to occupy many nationwide research centers at the northern part of Daejeon city, the number of scientists and researchers has increased dramatically, especially in the area of electronics and information technology. This helped the Daejeon Section accelerate its activities between universities and research institutes.
