The workshop on Supernova at Hyper-Kamiokande was held

On 12th and 13th February, the workshop on Supernova at Hyper-Kamiokande was held at the Koshiba hall in the University of Tokyo. About 100 researchers participated and discussed the expected sensitivity and importance of astro-neutrino observation at Hyper-Kamiokande such as neutrinos from supernova, dark matters, and so on. The top-level international researchers both from the theoretical and experimental field were invited as the speakers, and had fruitful discussions.

In astro-neutrino observations, it was confirmed that the Hyper-Kamiokande has an order of magnitude better sensitivity than running experiments, and invited speakers had great expectations for the early realization of the Hyper-Kamiokande. In addition, since it is just 30 years from the neutrino observation at SN1987A, its commemorative lecture and anniversary were also held.
