KEK 50th Anniversary Symposium

Asia/Tokyo
Description

This year marks the 50th anniversary of KEK, established in 1971 as the first inter-university research institute with the idea of establishing large-scale research facilities that would not be owned by a single university but would allow university researchers from all over Japan to use them collaboratively and achieve exciting results. Since its establishment, KEK has been developing, building, and operating state-of-the-art accelerators, and has also played an important role as an international center of excellence in the field of accelerator science. KEK provides important research and collaboration opportunities for researchers both in Japan and abroad and in academia and industry. These opportunities continue to significantly advance the frontiers of science and technology.

We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate KEK’s 50th anniversary by gathering both in person and online, to look back on its history and to discuss the achievements and outstanding results of 50 years of research and the future direction of science for KEK and its collaborators.

The symposium is open to everyone, and there is no registration fee. Please note that only speakers and invited guests will be able to attend in person. However, we sincerely look forward to hosting all other attendees online.
