Welcome to the Land of Morning Calm

The National Institute of Scientific Investigation (NISI) Symposium on Forensic Toxicology and The International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT), 43rd Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in Seoul, Korea at the Lotte Hotel Seoul from August 29th - September 2nd, 2005. It will provide an opportunity to exchange the latest information and advances in forensic toxicology - the best minds of the East and West uniting to improve the field of Forensic Toxicology. Also, we would like to invite you to take advantage of a few special interest programs we are holding, giving you an opportunity to experience Korean culture, food and sight seeing.

With over 600 years of history, the capital city of Seoul represents the heart and soul of the Korean past and future. From its historical palaces and folk villages to ultra-modern business and sports complexes, our city is truly multi-dimensional. Following the meeting, take a few days to see Gyeongju (city of 1000 years of history), Mount Seorak and the coastline of the eastern sea, and Jeju island.

We will make every effort to ensure your stay in Korea is informative and enjoyable. Please join us in Seoul for the NISI Symposium and the 43rd TIAFT Meeting "East meets West in Forensic Toxicology". We look forward to seeing you in 2005.
