Dear AKPA colleagues,
I am pleased to inform you that KPS (Korean Physical Society) and AKPA will host a Joint Symposium from 1pm to 8pm on Sunday, March 4, 2018 in LA (https://indico.cern.ch/event/690003/), prior to the APS March Meeting. This is to support young ethnic Korean physicists in Korea and North America. It will provide an opportunity for postdocs and students who will attend the APS March Meeting to present their work to the KPS-AKPA community and for the community to understand current concerns and needs of young Korean scientists in this global and rapidly changing society. We will also have an opportunity to congratulate and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Journal of the KPS.
If you plan to attend the APS March Meeting, I really hope that you will be able to participate in this Symposium. You can register at https://indico.cern.ch/event/690003/. There is no fee for registration. Symposium dinner will be provided.
If you would like to give a talk (this could be the talk that you will be giving at the APS March Meeting), please send one of the organizing team members email.
The organizing team consists of
- Takhee Lee, Seoul National University
- SangMin Lee, Seoul National University
- Young-Kee Kim, the University of Chicago
- Kyungseon Joo from the University of Connecticut
I look forward to seeing many of you at this Symposium.
I wish you and your family a healthy, fulfilling and joyful New Year.
Dear Fellow AKPA members,
It is my great honor to serve as the 32nd President of AKPA. Since its creation 38 years ago, AKPA has served the Korean physics community and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the 31 previous administrations. The many outstanding Korean physicists who led this Association carried out volunteer activities with passion and a wonderful spirit of community service. Together with the 32nd administration officers and committee members, I will endeavor to continue this tradition.
AKPA’s activities need to reflect that physics is global and that the world around us is constantly evolving. Building on the previous efforts of the AKPA and KPS administrations, we will continue to strengthen our ties to KEK and APS. APS has recently launched a Task Force on Expanding International Engagement. As part of this effort, they are reaching out to international partners in order to understand the different perspectives on shared interests and challenges. Addressing such concerns in partnership with APS can provide an opportunity to strengthen our connections to them as well as to other sister physics societies.
Supporting young scientists has been always a high priority for AKPA. Their concerns and needs evolve in this global and rapidly changing society. I will put effort to understand better their current issues and needs.
In order to serve all of you better, we need to have your input. So, please let us know what we can do for you!
I look forward to working with all of you,
The 32nd President of AKPA
Dr. Myoung-Hwan Kim (University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley)
We are delighted to inform you that Dr. Myoung-Hwan Kim, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley, will be the recipient of the 2018 AKPA Outstanding Young Research Award. Professor Myoung-Hwan Kim studies modern materials (low dimensional, topological, and correlated systems) with terahertz and infrared lasers. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Myoung-Hwan Kim.
The award ceremony will take place at the KPS-AKPA Symposium on Sunday, March 4 at the LA Convention Center, prior to the APS March meeting. After the ceremony, Professor Kim will give a presentation on his research and participate in the panel discussion on career opportunities and development for young Korean physicists (see the Symposium program at https://indico.cern.ch/event/690003/timetable/#20180304).
- This year’s OYRA Award Committee was composed of Professors Jiwoong Park of U.Chicago (chair), Harold Kim of Georgia Tech, Chueng-Ryong Ji of North Carolina State and Kwang-Je Kim of Argonne National Lab / U.Chicago. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the Award Committee for their time and effort for the Korean Physics community in America.
