The Kobayashi-Maskawa Institute for the Origin of Particles and the Universe (KMI) was established in 2010 at Nagoya University to explore new frontiers of modern physics beyond the Standard Model. KMI decided to launch the KMI school in 2018, to which we invite distinguished researchers to KMI to have them give their lectures on specific topics every year. The KMI school is intended for graduate school students and young post-docs. We would like you to encourage young members of your groups to join the KMI school.

The 4th KMI school will be held with the topic “Statistical Data Analysis and Anomalies in Particle Physics and Astrophysics”. Analysis of large data samples is required in particle physics and astrophysics. To obtain physics results from such large amounts of data, methods based on advanced statistics are extensively applied. The lecture on statistical data analysis will be helpful to many researchers, including our members in KMI. In addition to the lecture, we will also have topical seminars on anomalies in particle physics and astrophysics. They might be mirages, which appear on statistical fluctuations. On the other hand, they might be hints for big discoveries.
