Northeast Regional Conference (NRC) is one of the largest conferences in the northeast region of the United States whose goal is to promote the spirit of service in pursuing technical excellence by exemplifying those who have led such a life of service. The objective of this conference is to provide a forum in which scientists and engineers in major area present their research findings and share ideas.

This year, we had more attendance than last year from diverse entities. NRC 2017 greatly contributed to the advancement of research and development in both US and Korea. We hope that NRC will continue to grow and provide an opportunity for people in other technical fields to establish professional networks, as well as to explore career opportunities.
