Description

The Belle II electron-positron collider experiment at the KEK laboratory in Japan is undergoing detector commissioning this year, with first data taking using the full detector planned for early 2019. I will present the physics goals and current status of the project with a summary of recent activities relating to detector construction and the commissioning of the SuperKEKB accelerator. I will also report on the activities of Canadian groups that contribute to Belle II, as we commence the operational phase of the project.
