The 4th KMI International Symposium

on “Quest for the Origin of Particles and the Universe”
(KMI2019)
First Circular (2018/11/09)

The Kobayashi-Maskawa Institute (KMI), Nagoya University will host the 4th KMI International Symposium on “Quest for the Origin of Particles and the Universe” (KMI2019) from February 18 through 20, 2019. The aim of the symposium is to review the status and prospect of the cutting-edge researches in relevant fields, and to develop the interdisciplinary researches to approach the mysteries of Dark Universe. One of the highlights of KMI2019 will be a session focused on mysteries of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe.

Note that KMI2019 will be followed by the 2nd KMI school dedicated for the similar topic, from February 21 through 23, 2019. Students and young researchers are encouraged to attend also the 2nd KMI school.
