The 2024 Belle II Physics Week will be in-person gathering intended to foster open discussion among Belle II experimentalists and theory experts.


All collaborators are invited to join KEK for in-person attendance. 


The week will consist of two parts: 


- Mornings: a school for PhD students and early postdocs with general pedagogical lectures about aspects of Belle II and flavour physics. It will include plenary sessions on phenomenology, detectors, and benchmark analyses along with in-person hands-on work. Plenary lectures will be recorded. In-person hands-on will be conducted on-site. Online participation will be also possible.


 - Afternoons: a workshop, this is the second in a series of workshops focusing on special topics at the interface of theory and experiment that are priorities for the Belle II program. 


This year the workshop is on tau and dark sector at Belle II. 


We’d like to openly take on challenges, issues and opportunities at Belle II to generate a program of prioritised measurements/studies to advance the knowledge of these fundamental sectors in the next 3 years. 


A generous amount of discussion time is allotted to each talk in the program, which also includes extensive break out sessions. In this spirit, participation to the workshop is intended to be only in person to maximize the interactions and discussion. The workshop's discussions and conclusions will be documented in a short KEK report. 


Note that Wednesday evening we will have a poster session where Belle II students can present their work (analysis or else).


 Previous edition of physics week in 2023 was on Vcb determination.


Confirmed speakers include: Marco Ardu, Anke Biekoetter, Adrian Casais Vidal, Lorenzo Calibbi, Vincenzo Cirigliano, Stefania Gori, Martin Hoferichter, Nazila Mahmoudi, Giordon Stark, Olcyr Sumensari, Jure Zupan...


Organization committee: T.Ferber, L.Zani, K.Inami, E.Passemar, M.Endo, G.Z.Krnkaic, S. Hashimoto, J.Libby, K. Trabelsi.


 - The registration fee will be 8,000 JPY covering coffee breaks and a social dinner on Tuesday. For those who does not join the social dinner, a reduced registration fee of 2,500 JPY will be applied. An invoice from PayPal will be sent to registrants' email address, according to the information given at the registration.
