Multimessenger astronomy is a new research area utilizing all the available signals from the Universe. Researchers in a specific research field are often “beginners” in other fields. To share the very basics of astronomical observations, we organize an “Astronomy workshop for beginners”.

The second workshop focuses on observational techniques of neutrinos and statistical analysis of experimental/observational data. This is a precious opportunity to ask basic questions: we look forward to your active discussion.
