News: RIKEN tour after LEAP2016

A RIKEN tour (Wako campus) is organized on March 14 from 10:00am for the LEAP participants who are interested in visiting RIKEN. We are going to visit e.g., Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science, and Center for Advanced Photonics. There is also a possibility (not guaranteed) to visit other centers and laboratories upon request. Those who are interested in joining the tour, please contact us via LEAP2016_Support@riken.jp as soon as possible but not later than February 29.

General information of RIKEN can be obtained at http://www.riken.jp/en/, which also shows the access to the Wako campus.


More details will be informed later to those who contact us.


  • New Deadlines: December 31, 2015 for the early
    registration and abstract submission:

    Considering the fact that the registrations and abstract submissions sharply concentrated around December 15, we think it a good idea to extend the deadline of the early registration and abstract submission to the end of this month, December 31.
  • News: The proceeding of the conference will be published as a volume of JPS Conference Proceedings (for details, please click ) http://leap2016.riken.jp/proceedings/
  • New news: Best Poster Prize sponsored by Nature Physics (for details click "Abstracts and Posters")


Deadline for early registration: December 15, 2015
Deadline for Abstracts: December 15, 2015
Deadline for the request of financial support: December 15, 2015

The LEAP (Low Energy Antiproton Physics) conference is held every two or three years since 1990 to discuss the latest findings and exchange information in the interdisciplinary fields with low energy antiprotons.
The field of low energy antiproton physics has remarkable progress recently. The number of collaborations and scientists participating various antiproton and antihydrogen physics at CERN’s Antiproton Decelerator have been increased, which will be further enhanced by the Extra Low Energy Antiproton Ring (ELENA) expected its operation in a few years. Also studies of proton-antiproton annihilations leading to exotic hadrons offer a new perspective of understanding the dynamics of strong interaction and hadronic matter. Exciting developments are also expected in searches for antimatter in the Universe. The upcoming Facility for Low-Energy Antiproton and Ion Research (FLAIR) as part of the FAIR project will also provide new opportunities for antiproton experiments.
The intent of LEAP 2016 is to actively stimulate the overlap and dialogue between various research forefronts in the diversified field of antiproton physics and related field involving meson and baryon with strangeness.
The scientific program will consist of invited and contributed talks. Poster sessions will also be prepared to enhance further discussions and exchange of information.
The LEAP 2016 is hosted by RIKEN. It will be held on March 6-11, 2016 in Kanazawa, Japan, which takes just 2:30 hours by newly opened ShinKansen (bullet train) from Tokyo. Kanazawa is one of the most beautiful historic cities still keeping the redolence of good old days of Japan. The convention venue will be the Kanazawa Kagekiza (Kanazawa Theater) at the historic center of Kanazawa. The conference excursion will be organized to Shirakawa-go under snow, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. Let’s leap in an old, fairy tale-like world and experience the picturesque harmony between the village and nature.

The previous successful meetings were held at Stockholm (1990), Courmayeur (1992), Bled (1994), Dinkelsbühl (1996), Villasimius (1998), Venice (2000), Yokohama (2003), Bonn (2005), Vienna (2008), Vancouver (2011), and Uppsala(2013).

The Second Circular will include guidelines for abstract submission, the preliminary program, as well as detailed information about travel, visa, accommodation and the conference excursion.

The social program will include a welcome reception on March 6 in the evening, a public lecture, an excursion, and a conference banquet. The public lecture is free. The registration fee covers the welcome reception and the conference dinner. In addition to the conference excursion, a tour in Kanazawa will be arranged for accompanying persons during the conference.

The conference website is http://leap2016.riken.jp/, and is updated from time to time to include new information.
