24th JSPS “Science in Japan” Forum

June 7, 2019, Washington, DC, USA

The 24th JSPS “Science in Japan” Forum will be held on Friday June 7th, 2019, from 1:00 – 5:30pm at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC.  This forum, themed “New Eyes on the Universe,” will explore how ‘New Eyes’ such as neutrino and gravitational wave detectors are adding completely new kinds of information to our understanding of the universe. The ability of each detector is surely improving, but more remarkable is that the simultaneous observation by different kinds of detectors is opening new aspects of the universe. The speakers at this event will discuss this “New Astronomy” based on the innovation and collaboration of these observation devices. Further details about this free forum, including the program, reception details, and registration link, can be found here.

Venue: Cosmos Club, 2121 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, DC.  Location and other details, including the club’s dress code for visitors, can be found here.
