Another important activity of ANPhA is organizing AAPPS DNP (= ANPhA) Awards for Young Scientists (AAYS) [] for ANPhA-supported scientific meetings (symposiums, conferences, and schools). AAYS is a kind of poster session and/or presentation awards for young participants of the meeting. Several very good presentations are selected by an award nomination committee of the meeting organized in Asia Pacific, and AAYS certificates with a small amount of award money (just 100 USD for the first rank winner) is given to presenters. AAYS started in 2017 with financial support from AAPPS, which served as the first source of the award money. Now, the award money of AAYS is covered by the annual fee of ANPhA member countries and regions. Fortunately, until now, we have had 17 occasions to present the AAYS. The latest one was given at the 9th International Symposium on Nuclear Symmetry Energy (NuSYM2019) held in Da Nang City, Vietnam, from 30 September 4 October 2019 (see ). In 2021, however, only two conferences were selected for AAYS the Asia Pacific Few Body Conference, which will be held in Kanazawa, Japan and the Nuclei in Cosmos conference, which will be held in Chengdu, China. Many more applications to AAYS as well as ANPhA-supported meetings are always welcome!

On the other hand, the Center for Extreme Nuclear Matters (CENuM), which is one of the Science Research Centers supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea, is developing the various detector components for the low-energy experiments at RAON. Presently, CENuM is developing the LaBr(Ce) gamma detector system, Active-Target TPC (AT-TPC) and Si-CsI telescope. shows the superconducting solenoid magnet for AT-TPC, designed and manufactured by CENuM and the local industry. The diameter and length of central opening are 60 cm each, and the maximum strength of the magnetic field is 1.5 Tesla, which will greatly enlarge the territory of the research subjects. For the Si-CsI telescope CENuM recently joined the Four Pi A and Z Identification Array (FAZIA) Collaboration in Europe. As a part of the Collaboration, the members of CENuM are participating in the upgrade project of the FAZIA detector system and plan to build the FAZIA-like Si-CsI telescope system for LAMPS at RAON in the future. 3
