This paper reviews evolution of the research networks on intense laser science under international and Asian frameworks during 2000 to 2008. The OECD Global Science Forum Steering Committee on Compact, High-Intensity Short-Pulse Lasers led to the establishment of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Working Group: International Committee on Ultrahigh Intensity Lasers (ICUIL) and the Asian Intense Laser Network (AILN) in 2004. Through various activities under AILN such as the Asian Symposium on Intense Laser Science (ASILS), the Asian Summer School on Laser Plasma Acceleration and Radiation, and the High-Order Harmonics Workshops, closer relations are being formed among the scientists and also among the young generations working in intense laser science in the Asian regions.
