Hi Sanghee,
Thanks for your proposal that is exciting to read!


- Can you provide a little more information about the location, especially how well it can be reached from abroad? 
A first check for flights from Amsterdam showed many results with 30+ hours of traveling and 2 or more stops. What is that like from the US, Australia, India and other countries in Asia? And what is the impact of hosting the conference on a remote(!?) island instead of e.g. in Seoul? (By the way, I love the island idea :-) )

- You indicate that there are no Visa problems on Jeju Islands. Am I correct to assume that transit through mainland Korea and/or other neighboring countries gives no problems either?

- Are there LOC members living on Jeju islands?

- Have you hosted one of the local chapters conferences on Jeju in the past? What other locations in Korea did you host the conference in the past?

Thanks again, cheers,
