About the Symposium
Korea and Japan are two leading countries designing and building nuclear power plants in Asia. With a view to
contributing to the nuclear system performance with enhanced safety, the Thermal Hydraulics Divisions of the
KNS and the AESJ initiated a biennial symposium program across the sea: Korea-Japan Symposium on Nuclear
Thermal Hydraulics and Safety (NTHAS). Ever since the first symposium (NTHAS1) was held in Busan, Korea
in 1998, NTHAS continues to provide with a unique forum to exchange state-of-the-art technical information
and to interact amongst colleagues from next-door countries. The second to forth meetings were held in
Fukuoka (2000), Gyeongju (2002) and Sapporo (2004) with great success in technical quality and multitude
of participants. This year, the Fifth Korea-Japan Symposium on Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics and Safety
(NTHAS5) will be held in the semitropical island of Jeju, Korea. The official language of the symposium will be

Further Information for Overseas Participants
About the Venue
Jeju Island, which is located in the southwest sea of the Korean
peninsula, is a popular holiday spot for Koreans and many
Japanese. She is also known as the "Island of the Gods" and it
remains one of the top honeymoon destinations for Korean
newlyweds. The island's mixture of volcanic rock, frequent rains,
and temperate climate, renders it very similar to the Hawaiian
Islands in the U.S. The island offers visitors a wide range of
activities: hiking on Halla-san (South Korea's highest peak),
catching sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, viewing
waterfalls, riding horses, or just lying on the beaches.
The Symposium will be held at Ramada Plaza Jeju Hotel. Please

Jeju Island One of the most beautiful islands in
East Asia is located just one hour by air from Seoul.
Being of volcanic origin, Jeju has 368 secondary
craters, with Mt. Halla (1950 m) in the center of the
island - it is an extinct volcano with a big crater on
the top and lush vegetation growing down to the very
seaside. The island is 73 km from west to east coast,
and 31 km from north to south shore, with a coast
line of 254 km.
Climate Typical coastal climate with minimum
temperatures above 0°C even during winter due to
warm currents. The island is on the border between
moderate and subtropical zones. In hot summer,
usual air temperature is 26°C, highest 33°C, highest
water temperature of the upper layers reaching 28°C.
In autumn, the air gets cooler, but water temperature
remains around 24°C until October. Jeju has short
and mild winter with snowfalls in the northern part
and in highland, while in the southern part farmers
Nature - Jeju is endowed with a unique nature: beautiful rocky seaside, picturesque beaches with colorful
sand, countless blooming trees in winter, spring and summer, diverse underwater world and lush vegetation.
On a relatively small territory of 1,845 km2 Jeju has scores of places for sightseeing. On Jeju you can visit
several (but not all) exotic places and sights just in one day, and transfers take from 10 min to 60 min.
Attractions - Jeju is in subtropics and is an excellent place for active tourism. You can enjoy pure sea and air
with a favorable ecology. The island has no manufacturing; most income of local people comes from tourism,
agriculture and fishing. Jeju is one of the most untainted places in Asia, environment is a high priority here and
development of many places is strictly controlled. Loads of opportunities for water sports: scuba-diving, sea
kayaking, windsurfing, parasailing… you name it.
