The positive participation of the university in this annual forum has been deeply recognized by other member universities and the two founders of GPAC, Prof. Min Sang Kee (Seoul National University) and Prof. Haruo Shimada (Chiba University). 
At the meeting, the participants have discussed on several important issues such as the expansion of GPAC members, the selection of time and venue as well as the theme of GPAC in the next years.

Those were the impression of a dynamic and modern Seoul; impression of a professional organization and hospitality of the Seoul National University; and above all is close friendship among students who came from different countries through GPAC activities.
