Abstract / Description:SEEDS (the Subaru Strategic Exploration of Exoplanets and Disks with Hi-CIAO/AO188) is a strategic five-year campaign of direct imaging surveys of exoplanets/disks using the Subaru telescope equipped with the new adaptive optics system AO188 and our new high-contrast instrument, HiCIAO. The goals of the survey are to address the following key issues in exoplanet/disk sciences: (1) the detection and census of exoplanets; (2) the evolution of protoplanetary and debris disks; and (3) the link between exoplanets and disks. Targets prepared for the SEEDS exoplanet searches are in four categories, including nearby stars. We present our scientific motivations and current status of the SEEDS target selection in the nearby stars category.
