The 2015 Goesan International Organic Expo, which will kick off Sept. 18 in the mountainous agricultural town in North Chungcheong Province under the theme “Organic Life, Science Meets the Public,” will hold 17 different academic conferences, including forums and seminars with both domestic and international guests.
