KSEA Central PA Chapter is preparing for a monthly multidisciplinary seminar series in 2015. We urge you to attend this seminar and present your own research for many reasons.  First, this seminar series will offer great opportunities to mingle with people in the Korean academic community in State College on a regular basis, to network with professionals from different backgrounds, and to find collaboration opportunities. Second, as a student speaker, you will get systematic feedback from audience on your presentation and technical communication skills through clear rubric. At the end of each academic year, the best student presenter will be awarded a ‘student presentation award’ and a gift card through a ‘Student Presentation Competition,‘ which will be an excellent addition to your resume.

재미한인과학기술자협회 Central PA 분과에서는 올해 2015년 대학생, 대학원생, 연구원 등을 대상으로 월간 다학제적 세미나를 개최합니다. KSEA 월간 세미나는 매월 한 두 명의 학생 발표자를 초대하여 약 1시간 동안 20분 발표와 추가 Q&A를 통해 서로의 관심 분야에 대해 알아가고 한인 연구자들끼리 친목을 다질 수 있는 시간을 마련하고 있습니다. 학생 발표자분들께는 학술 발표 및 과학적 커뮤니케이션 기술에 관한 체계적인 평가지를 통해 청중들로부터 익명의 피드백을 받을 수 있습니다. 또한, 정기적으로 학생 발표자를 대상으로 수여되는 ‘학생 발표 우수상’은 참가자 여러분들의 학술 경력에도 도움이 될 것입니다. 학부생, 대학원생 분들의 많은 참여를 부탁드립니다.
