Before IVC-20, the 123rd IUVSTA Executive Council Meeting (ECM 123) was held in Gyeongju, Korea, from August 19 to 21, 2016. The city of Gyeongju served as the ancient capital of the Silla kingdom for 1,000 years during Korea’s 5,000-year history and is a UNESCO world heritage city. Like Rome, it is considered an “open-ceiling museum,” with its many historical sites rich in cultural artifacts. As a memento of our time together in Korea, we have assembled a variety of photos from the IUVSTA meeting for your enjoyment. You may download them by clicking on the link below.
