Keynote speakers Dr. Tom Griffiths from Aquatic Safety Research Group, Dr. Amit Lotan from Nidaria Technology Company, Mr. Daniel Schaffer from Foundation for Environmental Education, and Dr. Jung Lyul Lee from Sungkyunkwan University shared their studies and findings about the water safety and drowning prevention.

As achievement, 75 full papers among 151 full papers were published as special issue of JCR (Journal of Coastal Research) which is one of prestigious journals about coastal.

The second symposium was a stepping stone to draw the attention from researchers, experts and stakeholders in water safety to solve the global issue of preventative accidents around the aquatic environment.
