Participant : Yongsoon Choi,

Venue: DAUM building, Hannam-dong, Seoul, Korea
Date: Saturday, November 7 2009

Seoul Bar Camp had 2 sessions and many discussion issues. In fact, I could not count on how many discussions were going on at that time because Seoul Bar camp was very flexible un-conference and I could see many enthused volunteers were presenting their researches and ideas freely during the sessions without presentation allocations. This event was started from almost 10 AM and finished 5PM.
