Beijing, China


The videos of the lectures and the gong shows can be found online on Youtube and Bilibili.


The Kavli Asian Winter School (KAWS) on Strings, Particles and Cosmology is a pan-Asian collaborative effort of high energy theorists from China, India, Japan and Korea to give young researchers in Asia an opportunity to come together and learn about the latest developments in high energy theory from leading experts on the subject.

This school is aimed towards advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and active researchers in the field. This is the 15th in a series of Asian Winter Schools that have been organized on a rotating basis among Japan, China, India and Korea. We welcome students from all of these participating countries as well as students from outside.

Due to covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 KAWS will be held virtually for the first time in its history. The school will be hosted on ZOOM. Upon approval, registered participated will be granted access to the school.

The 2021 School is generously supported by the Kavli foundation and Tsinghua University.

The previous Asian Winter Schools in this series have provided young researchers with opportunities for discussions with leading experts in different areas and also for initiating collaboration with other young researchers belonging to the different participating countries. We hope the 2021 School will continue this tradition.
