1. The first STAR Asia Meeting (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions) was successfully held with total 76 participants from Korea, China, USA and other countries. The purpose of this meeting was to bring all asian STAR collaborators maximizing their contributions to ths STAR as well as the heavy ion physics society in the world. Through 4 full day programs, the participants could share academic results, develop new ideas and educate and/or encourage their students.
The list of all participants can be found at the conference webpage http://him.phys.pusan.ac.kr/~STAR
2. In the 2nd day (May 7), specially we had very fruitful discussions and presentations on STAR computing and data transfer from BNL to KISTI including possible coworking between Korea and China. The KISTI is preparing to provide considerable computing resources for the STAR with high end research network technology as Asian gateway.
3. The 2nd KORIA (Korea Rare Isotope Accelerator) session was held after the conference. Possible nuclear Physics programs were discussed theoretically as well as experimentally in detail. Some main ideas were collected for the future project at KORIA, and a collaboration was suggested to be organized by Prof. B.Hong.
4. All contributions are available at the conference webpage http://him.phys.pusan.ac.kr/~STAR
5. The next HIM (HIM 2009-09) will be held at Pohang APCTP Headquater in September. with title "The 1st RUN at LHC ¥° (CMS)". Prof. B. Hong (Korea Univ.) and Prof. I. Park (Univ. of Seoul) would serve as main organizers for the HIM 2009-09. An active program will be announced as soon as it is ready, at the HIM-hompage (http://him.phys.pusan.ac.kr). We hope to see many active participations in Pohang
6. The 7th Nuclear Physics School 2009(NPS 2009) will be held at Pohang APCTP Headquater on June 29 (Mon.) ~ July 3 (Fri.). This school, hosted by the nuclear physics division of the Korean
Physical Society, is intended primarily for the first and second year Ph.D.
students, and also open to all levels of graduate students and
postdoctoral researchers in either experimental or theoretical nuclear physics.
The primary aim of this school is to provide future researchers with a broad
perspective in current research and the basic nuclear physics knowledge in the
