The SKA Organisation has been informed of an SKA East Asian Science Workshop to be held in Nagoya in June 2013. A similar Asian workshop was already held in 2011 as a kick-off discussion to have efficient collaborations among East-Asian countries both in scientific and engineering sides.The aim of the 2013 workshop is to put together the scientific efforts in various fields of astrophysics from East-Asia as well as other countries.

Plenary review talks, oral and poster presentations are planned. Significant time for a deep scientific discussion for each field of astrophysics will also be considered.

Young researchers including PhD students are particularly encouraged to attend the workshop.
