Steve, Did you every get an answer to this?

>From http://travel.state.gov/foreignentryreqs.html 

KOREA, REPUBLIC OF (South Korea) - *Passport and onward/return ticket required. A visa is not required for a tourist stay of up to 30 days. For longer stays and other types of travel, obtain a visa in advance, $45 fee. AIDS test required for persons working as entertainers and staying longer than 90 days; U.S. tests results accepted. For further information, check with the Consular Section of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, 2320 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20008 (202/939-5663 or 60) or nearest Consulate General: CA (213/385-9300 and 415/921-2251/3), GA (404/522-1611/3), Guam (671/472-6488), HI (808/595-6109), IL (312/822-9485), MA (617/348-3660), NY (212/752-1700), TX (713/961-0186) or WA (206/441-1011/4). Internet: www.koreaembassyusa.org 

http://www.koreaembassyusa.org/visiting/eng_visas.cfm reads among other things that, "You may enter Korea without a visa for a stay up to 30 days or less for tourism, visiting, or transit to another country when carrying a valid US passport."  So, this page isn't clear as to whether a visa is needed for icalepcs.

http://www.koreaembassyusa.org/visiting/eng_visatype.cfm lists 26 different visa types, but none of the described types say anything about attending conferences.

Clear as mud, isn't it!

The ICALEPCS'03 site page says "no visa needed" for US and most 
European nationals for visits less than 30 days, however, a source 
suggests that if you say you are "attending a conference" upon entry 
you must (should) have business visa.

Any knowledge/opinions?
