central Tokyo and 76km from Narita airport (map).
The second half of the school will be held in a meeting room of
"Ibaraki Quantum Beam Research Center" (IQBRC) in Tokai,
which is located just in front of the J-PARC site.
Tokai village is at 110km northeast of Tokyo in Ibaraki Pref.,
where new high intensity proton accelerator complex, J-PARC
and neutrino beam line for T2K experiment are sited..
This school is intended for graduate students and fresh posdocs
working in particle physics and related fields.
Total number of students will be limited to 60.
Participation to the school is by invitation only.
Application for invitation is necessary. See “Registration” for detail.
