The conference aims to give graduate students in all Korea-related fields an opportunity to present their research, share academic interests, and strengthen ties with other junior scholars. On the back of successful previous conventions at Ruhr University, Bochum (2004), SOAS, London (2005), the Oriental Institute, Prague (2006), and Edinburgh University (2007), Leiden University (2008) a KSGSC organization committee has been set up under the umbrella of the Association for Korean Studies in Europe (AKSE) to ensure the continuation of the conference.
