Na Hyun Jo (Assistant Professor, University of Michigan)
"for pioneering experimental studies of quantum materials under strain using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) "
This award is jointly sponsored by the Association of Korean Physicists in America (AKPA) and the Korean Physical Society (KPS).
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Junyeong Ahn and Dr. Na Hyun Jo for their outstanding achievements!
2023 AKPA-KPS Symposium
The 2023 AKPA-KPS Symposium will be held via ZOOM. The 2023 Outstanding Young Researcher Award (OYRA) will be presented in the beginning of the event, and the presentations by the winners and the others will follow.
8:00 – 10:30 pm, May 14 (Sun), 2023 in EST
9:00 – 11:30 am, May 15 (Mon), 2023, in KST
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.

Currently open! Register at http://nmsc.ksea.org. The deadline to register is March 31, 2022.
Math Test: The written exams include Part 1 consisting of 20 multiple-choice questions and Part 2 consisting of 5 free response questions with integer-valued answers.
Physics Test: The written exam consists of 12 multiple-choice questions with 10 choices for each question.
NMSC will be offered asynchronously with the parents’ consent to proctor students. Contestants also will be required to log into the NMSC Headquarters Proctoring System using a smartphone.
Each chapter will hold its own award ceremony. Stay tuned for your chapter’s announcement.
Each participant will be ranked among NMC contestants in the same grade. Top three performers in each grade category will be awarded $500 for first place, $300 for second place, and $200 for third place. Top-scoring 2022 NMC participants will be invited to the Hanhwa Mathematics Olympiad that will be announced in May 2022.
The top three performers in the written test will be awarded $500 for first place, $300 for second place, and $200 for third place.
