It is our pleasure to announce that the 1st Hawaii Mini-Symposium of the US-Japan Science and Technology Cooperation Program in High Energy Physics will be held on April 22-24, 2021, at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, USA. This symposium is co-hosted by KEK and University of Hawaii and sponsored by DOE.


The US-Japan Science and Technology Cooperation Program in High Energy Physics was started in 1979 under the Agreement between the Government of Japan and the Government of the United States of America on Cooperation in Research and Development in Science and Technology, aiming to promote joint research and development in High Energy Physics.


In 2019, it celebrated its 40th anniversary and a symposium was held in Hawaii, which gave us an idea to launch this mini-Hawaii-symposium series to encourage the collaboration further and foster young scientists.


The annual meeting of the US-Japan Joint Committee will be held following the Mini-Symposium.

Both the symposium and the meeting will be by invitation only.


The Local Organizing Committee co-chairs XXX YYY and  XXX YYY(TBD).
