Willkommen zur 1. Belle II Akademie

The German Belle II groups organize its first advanced school on flavor physics, aimed at PhD candidates and new Postdocs, with kind support of the German Ministry of Education and Research.
The academy takes place in the week from March 22 to 26 and is scheduled to consist of morning sessions, afternoon sessions and 4 evening lectures.

2-hours lectures on analytical techniques, as well as tandem lectures, 1-hour each, on theoretical and experimental perspectives are scheduled for the morning and afternoon sessions.

To conclude the days, there will be evening lectures that will go beyond the horizon of particle physics, for example to show career perspectives outside the academic world. Another highlight will be on Monday evening: Dr. Viola Priesemann (MPI for Dynamics and Self-Organization Göttingen) will present on her current work, mathematical modeling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

But the Belle II Academy is not just about listening to our speakers. We want you to get involved yourself as well. That's why we've planned an interactive session on Monday morning, Getting started at Belle II: A life/live tutorial. This session thrives on participants telling about their favorite topic. The idea is that you will give a 5-7 minute lightning talk on a very specific topic, with 2-3 slides. We've put together a few suggestions in this Google Sheet, but of course you're also welcome to bring a topic of your own. If you have an answer to the question "What do I wish I had known when I started my PhD?" that's the right topic for this session.
We would love for you to take this opportunity to share your knowledge about your favorite topic.

If you want to participate, please fill in the Google Sheet with your topic and your name. Of course you can also do this later.

Please register until March 18. This will ensure that you receive all the information you need to log into the Zoom session in time. The Belle II Academy is free of charge.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Pascal Schmolz ( or Nathalie Eberlein (
