Workshop on Supernova at Hyper-Kamiokande

30 years from SN1987A and the future

Hyper-Kamiokande represents the next generation of large water Cherenkov detectors. It is to be a multi-purpose detector, whose capabilities shall include the precision study of neutrino oscillations; proton decay searches; and the observation of astro-particle neutrinos, such as supernova neutrinos, solar neutrinos, and high energy astro neutrinos. Due to Hyper-Kamiokande's unprecedented reach in all of these areas, it will provide a wealth of possibilities for new discoveries and deepen our understanding of nature.

In this workshop, we will discuss the supernova neutrino research that will be conducted by Hyper-Kamiokande and several other near-future detectors, as well as Hyper-Kamiokande's potential for studying the other types of astro-particle neutrinos.

Since February 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of SN1987A, we are also planning several memorial lectures commemorating the historic supernova neutrino observations made in 1987. The workshop banquet is for the Cerebration of the 30th Anniversary of Supernova SN1987A. (please see here)

We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop.

Thank you very much,
