KMI Workshop “Future perspective in Cosmology and Gravity” was held


KMI held a workshop on “Future perspective in Cosmology and Gravity,” from April 2 through 4, 2019. Our goal of the workshop is to improve collaboration between KMI and Leung Center for Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (LeCosPA), National Taiwan University. We had about 50 attendees including 11 people from Taiwan.

This tremendous joy, I found this first workshop between KMI, Nagoya University and LeCosPA, National Taiwan University organized by Prof. Keisuke Izumi extremely inspiring. To my knowledge, this is a rather unique workshop in the sense that its primary goal is to promote the collaboration between our two institutions whose science missions are highly overlapped, in searching for the fundamental understanding of the universe, while physicists currently not belonged to either KMI or LeCosPA, but whose research is associated with our two centers’ main directions are also welcome.  Through the three-day workshop, I had learned so many exciting research directions pursued by the KMI colleagues. I am particularly pleased to see the very nice works presented by the students on our both sides. This workshop serves as a wonderful forum for our students to train themselves in their communication skills, some for the first time in their career.  I pledged to carry on the banner incepted and wonderfully organized by Prof. Izumi to host the next KMI-LeCosPA Workshop in Taipei so as to further promote the collaboration between our two institutions.
