What is GIS Taiwan?

GIS Taiwan(Global Initiatives Symposium in Taiwan) is an international student conference found by college students in Taiwan and takes place every summer (mostly in July). Each year the host team will set a main topic and a few subtopics, for all the delegates to express their point of view and to discuss. During this week-long conference, exposure to local culture and activities are also included. So GIS Taiwan is a great chance to make friends around the world who share the same interest, and also to explore the amazing facts of Taiwan.
