Yoji Totsuka Memorial Symposium
--- Neutrino, Particle and Astroparticle Physics ---
Professor Yoji Totsuka, who made a significant contribution to the development of basic science by his excellent research achievements in neutrino, cosmic-ray and elementary particle physics, passed away on July 10, 2008. Just before the first anniversary of his death, we would like to hold a memorial symposium, for the purpose of glancing in retrospect over his personality and scientific achievements as well as discussing future prospects of the relevant research field where he played a leading role.
- Date: June 9 (Tue), 2009 10:00-17:40
- Registration is not necessary.
- Place: Yasuda Auditorium, Hongo Campus, the University of Tokyo
