The Fourth Annual Conference of the Research Center for Korean Community, which was co-organized by the University of Toronto (Dr. Samuel Noh) in conjunction with the RCKC, was held on April 5-6, 2013 at the Rosenthal Library, Queens College.

The theme of this year's conference was "Second-Generation Korean Experiences in the United States and Canada." Fourteen Korean-American and Korean-Canadian scholars gave presentations on a range of subjects, including the economic value of bilingualism among younger-generation Koreans, ethnic insularity among Korean-American Christians, adverse psychological effects of racial and/or ethnic discrimination on Korean Canadians, an examination of Korean "tiger moms" and other approaches to parenting, a comparison of earlier and later cohorts of second-generation Korean Americans, ethnic entrepreneurship and generational mobility among Korean Canadians, and many other interesting subjects. Additionally, Dr. Sung Kil Min from Yonsei University and Seoul Metropolitan Eunpyeong Hospital in South Korea gave a Korean-language presentation on foreign residents and their children in Korea. This year's conference was the Center's biggest so far, in terms of the number of presenters, the number of attendees, and the breadth of the subject matter of the presentations.

We would like to thank everyone who participated, attended, and helped out with this successful two-day conference. We would also like to express special thanks to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Dr. Samuel Noh, Toronto, Ontario), Academy of Korean Studies (South Korea), and Queens College for providing financial support and usage of media equipment and facilities. We would also like to thank the various individuals and businesses who provided support in the form of advertisements in our conference program.
