The 15th International Symposium on Origin of Matter and Evolution of Galaxies

July 2--5, 2019
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University


The 15th International Symposium on Origin of Matter and Evolution of Galaxies (OMEG15) will be held at the Yukawa Institute, Kyoto University in July 2--5, 2019. This symposium is a part of the series that started in 1988. Recent OMEG symposiums were held at Tsukuba, Japan (2013), Beijing, China (2015), and Daejeon, Korea (2017).

The OMEG15 symposium will provide a forum for researchers from various fields such as nuclear physics, particle physics, astronomy, astrophysics, earth and planetary physics to discuss origin of matter and evolution of universe.

Schedule & Venue

Kyoto is located about 2.5 hours from Tokyo using the Shinkansen express train, 1.5 hours from the KANSAI International airport (KIX).


The main topics covered by the OMEG15 symposium are:

  1. Big Bang Cosmology and Primordial Nucleosynthesis
  2. First Generation Stars and Galactic Chemical Evolution
  3. Astronomical Observations with Light, X-Ray, Gamma-Ray, and Cosmic-Ray
  4. Stellar Evolutions and Hydrostatic Burning Processes
  5. Nuclear Structure and Reaction for Astrophysics
  6. Explosive Stellar Objects and Nuclear Physics
  7. Meteorite Analysis and Isotopic Abundance
  8. Nuclear Matter and Neutron Stars
  9. Nuclearsynthesis in Neutron Star Mergers
  10. Nuclear Data for Astrophysics and Related Topics
  11. Underground Nuclear Astrophysics
  12. Next generation RI Beam Facilities for Nuclear Astrophysics

There are many hotels in Kyoto. The participants are encouraged to book the hotel by themselves. A list of the hotels is available at We recommend participants to book early as possible. Several rooms are reserved for the participants at the guest house of the Yukawa Institute (Kitashirakawa Gakusha, 2,500 or 3,300 JPY/night) and at the Shirankaikan Annex (6,800 JPY/night). The participants will be able to request the room at Kitashirakawa Gakusha or Shirankaikan Annex on the online registration. However, the number of rooms are limited, therefore, leave the assignment to the organizers if the number of applicants exceeds the number of rooms.

Financial Supports

A limited amount of financial support will be provided to students and researchers at their early-stage career to encourage their participation in the OMEG15 symposium. We expect to offer limited support to fully or partially cover domestic travel and local expenses based on availability of funds. Participants will be able to apply for the support on the online registration.
