Conference Description:

On behalf of the Congress, I am very pleased to invite you to the 7th EAFES International Congress, which will be held at Daegu, Korea from April 19 to 22, 2016. I am sure that the Congress will meet your expectations with rewarding scientific, social and cultural experiences for all of you.

Since the first EAFES International Congress was held in Mokpo, Korea, in 2004, the EAFES Congress has fostered and become one of the most important meetings in the ecological field. The Ecological Societies of China, Japan, and Korea collaboratively established the EAFES (The East Asian Federation of Ecological Societies). The three Societies take turns organizing the joint meeting (EAFES Congress) at least once in 2 years that has greatly contributed to developing the ecological science and society in the Asian region. The EAFES also welcome the participation of ecologists from other countries in East Asia, being happy to expand our federation into a wider region. The 7th EAFES will be a multidisciplinary meeting where ecologists, engineers, scientists and industrial experts in various fields can share and discuss their latest achievements for future breakthroughs in the field.

Daegu, the venue of this 7th EAFES International Congress, is located in south-eastern Korea near the Geumho River and its mainstream, the Nakdong River in Gyeongsang Province. The Daegu Basin, where the city lies, is the central plain of the Yeongnam region. Daegu, which was formerly spelled ‘Taegu’, and is officially known as the Daegu Metropolitan City, is the fourth largest city with its population of 2.5 million in South Korea after Seoul, Busan, and Incheon. The city is the capital and principal city of Gyeongsangbuk Province, although it is not legally part of the province. The two areas of Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk Province are often referred to as Daegu-Gyeongbuk, with the total population of over 5 million. The humid subtropical climate of Daegu is ideal for producing high quality apples, thus Daegu is nick named "Apple City". Daegu is also well- known as "Textile City". Textile used to be the pivotal industry of the city. With the establishment of the Daegu-Gyeongbuk Free Economic Zone, Daegu is currently focusing on fostering fashion and high-tech industries.

I look forward to seeing you in Daegu, Korea in 2016.
