Starting from the fiscal year 2018, KMI gives a warm welcome to Prof. Makoto Kobayashi as the new Director General of the institute. Succeeding the position after Prof. Toshihide Maskawa, Prof. Kobayashi is the second Director General of KMI since its establishment. Together with Prof. Kobayashi, who is one of the world leading theoretical physicsits full of wit and expansive ideas, KMI is just on the boad for its further development.


Particle physicists at Nagoya University are getting excited with the start of a new international experimental project, the Belle II experiment using the SuperKEKB electron-positron collider at the KEK laboratory in Japan. On March 21, 2018, the project entered into a new stage of operation with successful storage of electron beams in the SuperKEKB accelerator main ring. The SuperKEKB/Belle II project is the successor of the previous KEKB/Belle project, which contributed to establish the Standard Model by measuring the particle-antiparticle …


Clarivate Analytics has selected Prof. Shin’ichi Nojiri, the director of Center for Theoretical Studies of KMI, as a Highly Cited Researcher in 2017.
