We would like to inform you of the following event organised by Dr Ekaterina Hertog of the University of Oxford and funded by the JSPS London Symposium/Seminar Scheme.


"Introduction to data and resources available at Statistics Bureau Japan"

Date and Time: 11:00 t0 18:00, Thursday 9th January 2020.

Venue: LLR Room, Nuffield College, University of Oxford


In two parts this symposium aims to showcase data collected and made available to researchers by the Japanese Statistical Bureau. In the first part two Japanese statisticians: Professor Hiroe Tsubaki (Director-General, The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tokyo; former president of the National Statistics Centre, Japan) and Dr Kiyomi Shirakawa (Deputy Director, National Statistics Centre, Japan) will talk about the statistical data collected by Statistics Bureau Japan with a particular focus on the data that can be used by scholars residing outside Japan. These presentations will be followed by Prof Nobuko Nagase (Ochanomizu University) and Mr Minoru Yagishita (Tokyo Metropolitan University) presenting their own research carried out using the data from the Statistics Bureau, Japan

Event Programme and Registration

The Experience Japan Exhibition seeks to introduce the growing range of study and research opportunities available in Japan.

Several leading Japanese universities will be attending the event to provide information on their exciting programmes, as well as about the various research opportunities, summer courses and other options open to international students. They will also provide information about the variety of scholarships and research funding available to help you take full advantage of these learning opportunities. From joining a cutting-edge research team at a top-tier university to studying Japanese at your own pace in a custom-made language course, Japan has no shortage of options to give you the study abroad experience you’re looking for.

This year’s line-up of seminars will cover the basics about local life, as well as allow you to hear directly from individuals who have lived, studied, and conducted research in Japan. Guest speakers will be delivering presentations that provide insights into the Japanese language, and the experience of being a researcher in Japan. There will also be a special seminar on the ever-popular Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme.

The event is hosted by Keio University, co-hosted by the British Council, and supported by JSPS and other funding agencies.

Neutrino physics: past, present and future


Date and Time: Thursday, 19 December 2019, 10:00 – 15:30

Location: Springer Nature Campus, London

Link to register attendance:

This event is organised by Dr Teppei Katori, King's College London and Dr Iulia Georgescu, Nature Reviews Physics with support from JSPS London

Neutrinos may be key to tackling deep questions about the Universe, such as the existence of new physics beyond the predictions of the accepted model of particle physics. There are many things we don't yet fully understand about these elusive particles, and to search for answers, physicists rely on large high-precision instruments built in unusual places, such as the Antarctic or abandoned underground mines, that are operated by big international collaborations. Some of the questions this event will cover include: What have we learned about neutrinos in the past decade and what do we hope to uncover in the coming years? How do these large instruments work and what does it take to run large international collaborations? Why do physicists build their experiments in remote locations and what technologies do they use to detect neutrinos? What challenges do they encounter when working across continents?

We have invited five leading scientists from the UK and Japan to share their excitement about neutrino physics and discuss the practical challenges they face in their research.
