The Nuclear Incompressibility parameter is one of three important components characterizing
the nuclear equation of state. It has crucial bearing on diverse nuclear and astrophysical
phenomena, including radii of neutron stars, strength of supernova collapse, emission of
neutrinos in supernova explosions, and collective flow in medium- and
high-energy nuclear collisions.  In this talk I will review current status of the research on direct
experimental determination of nuclear incompressibility via the compressional-mode giant
resonances. In particular, recent measurements on a series of Sn isotopes have provided a value
for the symmetry- energy term which directly influences the understanding of the radii of
neutron stars.

All interested persons are cordially invited to attend.
