The Institute for Mediterranean Studies was established in December 1997 as an attached research organization at Pusan University of Foreign Studies, with particular research interests on general aspects of the interchange of civilizations in the Mediterranean area. With its researchers and scholars of international distinction, the IMS is actively engaged in pursuing global trends. It is developing advanced documentation on this area of studies for the sake of Korean educational and academic society. The principal objective of the IMS is to organize and promote research in all aspects of the Mediterranean region. Interdisciplinary studies in art, culture, literature, language education and social sciences are pursued to add to the traditional studies on international relations. The International Conference 2010 is organized keeping this principal aim in mind.
