5th KEK Flavor Factory Workshop (KEK-FF2015)

Dates: October 26-27, 2015
Location: Waterras Common (in Japanese)

3rd Belle II Theory Interface Platform Workshop (B2TiP)

Dates: October 28-29, 2015
Location: KEK (Tsukuba) Kobayashi Hall, Kenkyu Honkan Bldg. 1F


We are pleased to announce the 5th KEK Flavor Factory Workshop (KEK-FF2015) held on October 26-27, 2015 at Waterras Common in the center of Tokyo, Japan and the 3rd Belle II Theory Interface Platform (B2TiP) Workshop held subsequently on October 28-29, 2015 at KEK in Tsukuba, Japan.

The KEK-FF workshop is aimed at stimulating discussions between experimentalists and theorists who are working on flavor physics. The subjects to be discussed will cover quark-flavor physics of K, D and B mesons and the physics of lepton-flavor violation of muon and tau. The workshop will consist mainly of plenary sessions by invited speakers. The workshop venue “Waterras Common” is located in Tokyo near a couple of train and metro stations: Ochanomizu, Shin-Ochanomizu, Awajicho, Ogawamachi, Kanda and Akihabara stations. We are planning to organize a workshop dinner on a traditional Japanese houseboat (“Yakatabune” in Japanese), which cruises around Tokyo Bay. After the KEK-FF workshop we will arrange buses from Tokyo to Tsukuba on the evening of Oct. 27 for people who will also attend the B2TiP workshop held at KEK. Invited speakers for the KEK-FF workshop include

  • Monika Blanke (KIT), “Flavour physics in the littlest Higgs model with T-parity”
  • Sebastien Descotes-Genon (LPT, Orsay), “Theoretical status of B → K* µ µ”

The B2TiP is a joint theory-experiment effort to study the potential impacts of the forthcoming Belle-II experiment. The B2TiP workshop will consist of parallel sessions of working groups. Please visit the B2TiP Twiki page for details about the scope and working groups of the B2TiP activity:

We welcome everybody who is interested in flavor physics.
