Topics Covered

There have been annual workshops in Kyoto on string theory and quantum field theory for a long time, which are definitely the largest in this field in Japan. This year marks the 25th anniversary. The contents of the past conferences are archived here.

This year we invite a few speakers from abroad and all the talks will be in English. We plan to have a few parallel sessions for short talks if we receive a large amount of applicants.

Registration

The registration site is here. The registration information can be changed here.

There is no registration fee.

The workshop is in a hybrid format. All the talks will be broadcast in Zoom, but researchers

can physically attend the workshop at the Panasonic Hall in the Yukawa Institute. Due to the reduced occupancy limit of the hall, those who wish to do so should indicate it from the registration page, and we might ask you to refrain from coming.

Note that the first day, August 23, is a pure online day for the virtual poster session.

The deadline of the registration for giving talks is Thursday, July 1st.
The deadline of the registration requesting financial support is also Thursday, July 1st.
The deadline of the registration for participation is Monday, August 9th.

The workshop consists of oral sessions and poster sessions. At the registration, a short oral talk or a presentation at virtual poster sessions can be chosen. We plan to have a few parallel sessions for short talks if we receive a large amount of applicants. We will try to accommodate your preference, but we may need to limit the number of talks. The abstract submitted at the registration will be announced at the web site later.

Slides in oral sessions and files in poster sessions will be uploaded at this web site and submitted to the online Japanese journal 素粒子論研究 (translated as "Research in high-energy physics"). We will not separately publish proceedings for this workshop. Please contact the organizers if you do not want to disclose your slides or poster files. All the talks will be broadcast online.

Financial support

This year's workshop is in a hybrid format, and we only have limited support for domestic travel expenses. If you need financial support, note that the deadline of the registration requesting financial support is Thursday, July 1st.
