" Early Initial Results from the NEP survey with AKARI:
Current Status and the Near-future Plan "
(Institute of Space and Astronautical Science / Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency)
The AKARI mission is the first Japanese satellite dedicated for large area
surveys in the infrared, and was launched successfully on February 22nd 2006 (JST).
AKARI will perform the most advanced all-sky survey in 6 mid- to far-infrared
wavebands since the preceding IRAS mission over 2 decades ago, and also deep
imaging and spectroscopic surveys near the ecliptic poles ( over $B%sim$15~deg$^2$
in total) with pointed observations in 13 wavelength bands at 2-160~$B%mu$m.
AKARI is a perfect complement to Spitzer in respect of its wide sky area
and wavelength coverage. In this talk, I will briefly describe the current
status of observations as well as the early initial results from the North
Ecliptic Pole survey with the infrared camera onboard AKARI.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
