Prof. Kohta MuraseIn, Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) Abstract: 2013, the IceCube collaboration reported 28 events of high-energy neutrino events. They are likely to contain extraterrestrial signals, and it is the dawn of a new age of neutrino astrophysics. In this talk, I try to demystify the origin of the observed neutrino signals. I discuss various astrophysical possibilities, and then demonstrate the power of the multi-messenger approach to reveal the origin.

"Planet Formation At Large Radial Distances": Direct imagining has revealed the existence of planets at tens of AU from their parent stars. This, together with current and future detections of planets at intermediate and large radial distances can impact significantly our understating of planets by shedding light on an unexplored region of planetary systems.
