Overview: Prof. Hirosi Ooguri is one of the founding members of the Kavli IPMU and is currently the director of Kavli IPMU. He has made tremendous contributions in physics and mathematics and is one of the most outstanding researchers of his generation. He is turning sixty this year, and we would like to take this opportunity to celebrate his remarkable contributions in physics and mathematics, bringing together experts worldwide.

This conference is followed by another event in celebration of Prof. Ooguri's 60th birthday: HirosiFest @ Caltech, October 27-28, 2022.

The conference is primarily in an "on-site/in-person" format, but we are thinking of making this event into a hybrid format, where online participation is also available.

The registration has not started yet and will be open shortly. Please come back to this webpage when we come closer to this conference.
