    We are very pleased to announce that ‘’APCTP 2012 LHC Physics Workshop at Korea’’ will be held on 7-9, August, 2012, at Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea, under the auspice of APCTP. It is well known to the physics community worldwide that APCTP is one of the internationally leading agencies located in Asia, dedicated to promote international cooperation among scientists in all areas of physics from the member countries within the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. In order to fulfill the purpose of APCTP, it has selected this workshop in the last three consecutive years as one of its main activities in the field of high energy physics. It is our purpose to provide this workshop as a platform for promoting the international relationship between Korean high energy physics communities and the leading organization of the sort in the world, CERN. Further, this workshop would like to provide communications and collaborations between experimental and theoretical physicists in the Asia Pacific region who take part, and want to take part, in the LHC program. In order to ensure active participation of young physicists who are interested in the LHC program, the vast and firm network of APCTP in the region would be of great help and necessity. We hope that this workshop will be a suitable place for those who are working in Korea for the LHC experiments to get together and exchange their ideas and achievements.

    Korean physicists are actively participating in the LHC experiments in two collaborations. One is the ALICE collaboration and the other is the CMS collaboration. A number of physicists and graduate students are involved in these two experiments. Besides, information technology experts are also taking responsible part in the grid computing for the LHC experiments: The Tier2 center for ALICE is established in KISTI and the Tier2 center for CMS is firmly established in Kyungpook National University. Also, there is a program between CERN and Korean Physical Society, which is to promote Korean theoretical high energy physicists visiting CERN as fellows. Currently, the activities of Korean scientists with respect to CERN are supported from the Korean government by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) and from the funding agency, the Korea Research Foundation. The activities include participation in the ALICE experiment under the name of the Korea-ALICE team (Principal contractor: Prof. I.-K. Yoo, Pusan National University), participation in the CMS experiment under the name of the Korea-CMS team (Principal contractor: Prof. I. Park, University of Seoul), operation of ALICE Tier2 center (Principal contractor: Dr. S. Hwang, KISTI), operation of CMS Tier2 center (Principal contractor: Prof. D. Son, Kyungpook National University), and activities in the Theory Group (Principal contractor: Prof. D. K. Hong, Pusan National University), as well as Tier1 project by Global Science Data Center (GSDC) of KISTI (head: Dr. H. Jang). A collaborative project on ISOLDE will also be launched next year. The research activities of these teams are carried out in parallel, cooperatively and independently. Thus, another purpose of this workshop is to share the progress of the research activities among these teams in one convention.
