1st CC Korea International Conference
Michelle Thorne, February 28th, 2008
The CC Korea team, lead by Chief Project Lead Jongsoo Yoon, have organized the conference not only to celebrate the 3rd birthday of CC Korea and its localized CC licenses, but as a platform to promote Open Culture in Korea, both qualitatively and quantitatively, by discussing case studies and coordinating future projects.
The program is divided into four tracks, covering topics such as open access and peer review, case studies in public sector content usage, Government Information Licensing Framework (GILF) in Australia, and media tools for CC in businesses.
Speakers at the conference include Creative Commons’ own Lawrence Lessig and Jon Phillips, John Wilbanks from Science Commons, Project Lead Brian Fitzgerald from CC Australia, and many representatives from Korean institutions including SuMyoung Lee (Ministry of Culture and Tourism), SeungHoon Chun (Samsung), iSuk Woo (Korea National University), KyoungHee Jung (Hansung University), JungWook Seo (Korea National University), SungWook Moon (KDI School of Public Policy and Management), JongMin Ham (NHN), and ChangShin Park (Newsbank).
