N-lab members reported their research results at the 12th High Energy Physics Spring School

The 12th Spring School of High Energy Physics was held on May 16th-18th, 2024, in Hikone, Shiga Prefecture. From N-lab, one staff member and eight students participated, with Associate Prof. Yasuyuki Horii giving a lecture and students giving oral and poster presentations.

The Spring School has been held since 2011 by the organizers including Prof. Makoto Tomoto and other researchers from various institutions. Its aim is to convey the fascination of experimental particle physics and to expand both vertical and horizontal connections across universities, experiments, and academic years through discussions among young researchers. Research presentations and discussions by participating students, as well as high-quality lectures by staff members, strengthened the interaction between students.
