The Korean Silicon Society (KSiS) was founded in December 21, 2011. Its valuable history was originated with the 1st Organosilicon Chemistry Workshop at Gyeongju in 1987, which was organized by a dozen of Korean silicon chemistry researchers.
In 1993 the silicon research community has been supported by the Korea Science Foundation and established the Study Circle for Silicon Based New Materials. After finishing the 26th Organosilicon Chemistry Workshop at May, 2011, the Study Circle started up again as the Korean Silicon Society.
Aims and objectives of KSiS:
