Belle II Summer School 2019

An international collaboration to study heavy quark physics using the Belle II Detector


Following the success of previous Belle II Summer Schools (University of Cincinnati 2018, University of Mississippi 2017, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory 2015 and 2016), the 2019 US Belle II Summer School will be hosted at Brookhaven National Laboratory July 29–August 2, 2019.

The purpose of the school is to help students, postdocs, and more senior researchers get started and make progress on Belle II analyses, either studying a physics channel or studying detector performance. The School will cover physics topics, computing, and Belle II software in a hands-on tutorial format.

There will be guest lectures on the following topics:

  • Charm and beauty decays
  • Quarkonia and the recently discovered XYZ states
  • Lattice QCD for Belle II
  • Belle II dark sector physics
  • Statistical methods

The School is open to all Belle II collaborators and we welcome attendance from across the collaboration.

Note: This event falls under Exemption D. Formal classroom training held at Federal facilities, which does not exhibit indicia of a formal conference. The exception would include activities such as regular courses of instructions or training seminars at the National Center and the HAMMER training facility at Hanford, and regular courses of instruction or training seminars conducted by the office of Management for Acquisitions, workforce related to the core activities of the department.
