** Venue

Jeju Island is the largest volcanic island in Korea. Officially called Jeju
Special Self-Governing Province, this premier tourist destination boasts mild
weather, as well as scenic beauties of beaches, waterfalls, cliffs and caves.
Some of the top tourist sites include Hallasan National Park with a largely
diverse species of flora and fauna, Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak with breath-taking
views, and Manjanggul Cave, the world’s longest lava tube that has been
registered as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage. Meanwhile, Jeju has recently won
the Global Geopark certificate, and also has been selected as the New 7 Wonders
of Nature.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of URAI. We cordially invite you to attend
and celebrate the 10th anniversary of URAI in this beautiful island.
