The 3rd KEK Student Day held in KEK

November 9, 2016

The 3rd KEK Student Day was held on October 25, 2016 at KEK Tsukuba campus.
This event provides an opportunity for all graduate students studying at KEK to meet once a year.
KEK hosts over one hundred graduate students of various universities including those of SOKENDAI.
Each student presented his/her research at oral and poster sessions, that were followed by a panel discussion session entitled "Research experiences in abroad," in which foreign students from Asian countries and Japanese students exchanged the experiences about their research and life.

The students actively joined the sessions to learn the research activities in the various fields of science. Maybe more importantly, it provided an opportunity to get to know each other beyond their own group or lab.

List of representatives are below
