The second and final day of the Urban Tourism Forum in the Mountainous Areas continued to discuss research papers about tourism investment and sustainable tourism in mountain regions. There were eleven research papers presented over three sessions. King Khalid University (KKU) participated with three papers presented by an elite group of professors, in which they handled the development and capacity in addition to the constraint of tourism in the Asir Region.

The first session started with a topic on tourism investment. It was presented by the Professor of Geography at the College of Human Sciences, Dr. Marsh Al Odaini, and Prof. Najoud Al Qahtani, under the title 'Obstacles of Hotel Tourism Activity in Abha City.' During their presentations, they talked about the characteristics of the Asir region in terms of climate, terrain, and vegetation, as well as the cultural and social aspects. The main message conveyed was that the region has the elements of a tourism industry that make it eligible to be one of the sources of national income in the future.

The Professor of Environmental Geography at the College of Human Sciences,  Dr. Adel Mu'atmad, opened the fifth session with his research paper on the theme of 'Sustainable Tourism in Mountain Areas,' titled 'Absorption Capacity for Ecotourism in the Asir Region: Practical Form.' In his study, he brought attention to tourism activities at the famous attraction, Al Souda Park.

In the last session of the second day,  the Professor of Human Geography at the College of Human Sciences, Dr. Fayez Asiri, presented his research paper titled 'Sustainable Tourism Development of the Mountain Valleys' under the session theme of 'Sustainable Development in the Mountainous Areas.' He used Abha valley as an example for the research. He suggested a suitable strategy for the sustainable development of Abha Valley, describing it as a vital natural resource by highlighting its natural and human advantages. He explained that we could support the sustainable development of the valley through the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques as an efficient and powerful tool in building geographic databases. This will ease managing and conducting a proper spatial analysis of the valley data by using automated modeling. Based on that, we can make digital maps containing valuable information helping to provide answers about the implementation of developmental strategies in the valley.

Assistant Professor of Archeology at King Khalid University, Supervisor of the Prince Sultan Bin Salman Chair for Tourism, Archeology and Heritage, Dr. Ali Marzouk, presented a research paper titled 'Aesthetic and Architecture Styles in the Traditional Houses of Asir Region.'

The research was discussed in the first session of the Urban Tourism Forum in the Mountainous Areas which was held in Abha, during the period of 28–29/12/1438 AH. 

Marzouk researched the types of traditional architectural styles in the Asir region, pointing to the role of the environment as important inspirations for those architectural styles. He aimed to attract international attention, and increase overall interest while raising the awareness of those who are concerned so that they would preserve the traditional architectural heritage in the Asir region and its associated artistic and aesthetic elements. 

He explained that the numerous architectural and aesthetic styles of the traditional houses in the Asir region are due to its different geographical and climatic diversity. As a result, the study undertook a cross-sectional area of study, from east to west, including the Tahami lowlands, the Sarah highlands, and the central plateaus.

The Summer School for Medical Research, which was organized by the Health Research Advisory Office (research), has concluded its activities at King Khalid University. It is noteworthy that these activities were the first of their kind in the region, in which more than 100 students from Health Specialties of King Khalid University (KKU) took part.

On this remarkable occasion, the President of the Health Research Advisory Office (research) at the Institute for Research and Consulting Studies at the University of King Khalid, Dr. Abdullah Abdul Mohsen Al-Sbani has confirmed that the designed programs aimed to make health research proposals and designs, in addition to making sure of meeting the terms and ethics of scientific research, and to develop research plans and mechanisms for implementation and for review, as well as for the development of plans and mechanisms for research statistical and qualitative analysis. Dr. Al-Sbani further confirmed that the programs aimed to evaluate, criticize, and review scientific researches, as well as to help in writing and in disseminating scientific papers and reports, in addition to the provision of curriculum, workshops, and training courses on how health researches work.

Dr. Al-Sbani clarified that the system of teaching and training in the summer school for research passed through several stages; first, trainees attended a series of lectures and workshops in order to get enough training on making and managing health research. Then, they were distributed to research groups according to their desires and their specialties, and they were supervised by a consultant of the same health specialization together with a supervisor of the Office. After that, each team started writing an integrated research Proposal for each group, which summarizes the research project that is being done during the summer period. At that stage, the trainees get the approval of the concerned authorities to start research procedures and to start collecting research data in order to be analyzed, and to interpret the results of the research for writing summaries. Finally, the team displayed research abstracts at the closing ceremony of the school.

It is worth mentioning that nearly 20 research proposals have been submitted and were then audited by committees specialized in research ethics in the region. Remarkably, all the 20 research proposals were approved.

A Masters Degree student at King Khalid University (Department of Physics), Mona Said Srheed has presented a study on the structural properties of a mixture of nano atomic aggregates. The student explained that the study aimed at identifying the spectral and structural characteristics of the mixture, and how they relate to the number of atoms as a variable. She also showed that the major and fundamental interest in the study of atomic or molecular aggregates lies in reducing the gap between atomic physics, and the physics of solids. She said, "Through this study, we seek to learn and discover about structure properties - magic numbers - and how it relates to the size of the aggregates "li + xen-lixen". Srheed showed that the research in this work is based on the analogy of an atom interaction or lithium ion (Li) with nano-systems including xzenn atoms(xe) to study compositional properties change with the change of the size of these systems. She added: "This study is based on a model which makes the total energy of the system equal to the total bilateral energies, and which depends on the accuracy of the results of a range of bilateral energies that will be obtained among the best available accounts on the scene." After that it will be the total energy simulation of the system as a function of changing the number of atoms, xzenn to reach fixed structures with a program that depends on the method of Montecarlo. Some of these structures have high stability and symmetry, and the number of atoms xzenn represents magic numbers. For these magic numbers, we must compare energy predecessor and the subsequent, as these data represent spectrums that are similar to experimentalists, thus rendering our results to represent a very important database for the experimentalists.
