Overview of this Workshop:
Vast amounts of observational surveys have revealed the variety of supernova explosions in the Universe. It is important to understand the nature of these supernovae in order to understand cosmic chemical evolution as well as supernova cosmology. We wish to hold a workshop on these issues, inviting many outstanding experts from across the world. The scientific topics will include:

 1) core-collapse supernovae and their progenitors, 
 2) Type Ia supernovae and their progenitors, 
 3) super-AGB stars and electron capture supernovae, 
 4) chemical evolution and galactic archelogy.

The workshop will be held for two weeks from 18 September to 29 September 2017: there will be relatively a small number of talks every day, leaving most of time for discussion and collaboration works.

This workshop also highlights the career and achievements of Ken'ichi Nomoto on his 70th birthday.  Ken'ichi Nomoto's wide-ranging international collaborations and high scientific profile worldwide is reflected in the international nature of this workshop.
