UKC 2022

The US-Korea Conference (UKC 2022) was held in Washington DC, August 18 – 20, 2022.  As a part of the program, AKPA organized the Physics Symposium with three oral sessions covering a wide range of topics: (1) Physics under extreme conditions, (2) Astrophysics, and (3) AKPA and Other Topics. More than 20 Physicists, from US and Korea and from graduate students to senior faculty members, participated and made stimulating presentations followed by many questions and discussions. The UKC 2022 and the Physics Symposium provided an excellent opportunity to establish and strengthen the professional network among the Korean physicists in US and from Korea through the scientific interactions, the networking dinner, and the banquet.
