The 2nd International Symposium on Quantum-field Measurement Systems for Studies of the Universe, Particles, and Other Applications (QUPosium2023) will be held December 11-13, 2023 in Tsukuba, Japan.

QUPosium2023 aims to bring together leading experts and researchers in particle physics, astrophysics, condensed matter physics, measurement science, and systems science to discuss most exciting developments and exchange ideas towards addressing 5 major mysteries of the Universe:

  1. What drives inflation and causes accelerated expansion of early Universe?
  2. Why is there more matter than antimatter in the Universe?

  3. What are the fundamental properties of neutrinos?

  4. What is the nature of dark matter?

  5. What is dark energy that causes accelerated expansion in late Universe?

The symposium will provide a venue to discover overlaps in methodologies, and discuss how we can integrate the efforts to produce new academic and social values.

Keynote and invited plenary speakers will introduce big questions and methods to address them in their research areas, as well as cutting-edge research results and new directions.

The symposium is open to researchers and students in related fields. Participant registration is required, there is no registration fee (banquet participation is charged).

Symposium participants, especially early career researchers, will have opportunity to present posters of their research. Posters will be displayed around the conference venue throughout the conference and will be accessible from the timetable web page.  There is the possibility of travel support for a limited number of poster presenters.
