Belle II administration


There are several steps required to initially register as a Belle II member and to obtain the various required accounts. Some of these steps will need to be repeated annually. If important information is missing or outdated please feel free to correct it. Note: The Belle II collaborative services are hosted at DESY and require a separate registration step (see 5). 

  1. KEK registration: Complete the KEK user registration following these instructions. The instructions, and a variety of other links from the main public web page, are located on, and are protected by a common userID and password. Please ask a colleague for details. 
  2. Membership list/photo: You will automatically be added to the Belle II membership list at the next monthly update. Please email a photo to the Belle II secretary at belle-secretary AT [replace AT with @] for inclusion in the database.
  3. KEK computing account: After you receive confirmation of your user registration, you can apply for access to the KEK computing system. Fill in the system registration form and the user account registration form following these instructions: sample for the system registration and the user account . Email the completed forms to Takanori HARA (takanori.hara AT If necessary, he may ask you further questions.
  4. Grid certificate / VO membership: The standard registration procedure for DESY credentials (next step) requires that you have a Grid certificate registered at the belle virtual organization. Instructions are here.  Note that you need to have completed KEK registration before you can register with the belle virtual organization. Short term members of Belle II, such as summer students,  do not require a grid certificate.

  5. Login to the Belle II collaborative services: You need credentials (account/password) to access the Belle II collaborative services (hosted at DESY), such as the internal wiki, document serverissue tracker and code repository. Here are instructions on how to register.

  6. Radiation worker application: If you plan to work in the Tsukuba hall please register as a radiation worker following these instructions. This can only be done after you have registered as a KEK user. It is definitely worth emailing your form to the radiation control center (muromati AT and the Belle secretary (belle-secretary AT at least a week in advance, even though you still need to bring the original with you. The chance of an error in the form is not small. If you require access to the interaction region in Tsukuba Hall, you will need to mention this at the time you get your badge.
  7. Wireless access at KEK: Before visiting KEK, you should register your laptop and other mobile devices for wireless access.
  8. VPN: If you require a VPN account, the application form is available here.
  9. Email lists: We use a Sympa server for various detector, software, and physics mailing lists. You can create an account once you have received your DESY credentials. To join a list, login with your sympa account, navigate to the relevant list and click subscribe. New members will automatically be registered to the general Belle II mailing list coll-members AT However, the mailing list is automatically updated only once in a month. If you would like to register your mail address sooner, please contact the Belle II secretary at belle-secretary AT
  10. Speakers committee: Ask your Institutional Board representative to register you with the Speakers Committee by emailing Ida Peruzzi (peruzzi AT
  11. Audio/Video meetings: Meetings can be attended via SeeVogh/eZuce, TeamSpeak, or Speakapp. Please see these instructions for details on joining the relevant communities. This, and subsequent steps, should be completed after you have received your DESY credentials. 
  12. Indico system: Slides of talks are collected in Indico. Details on how to use the system are here. You will likely need an indico account, as explained on that page.

You will need to repeat a number of these administrative steps at the start of each Japanese fiscal year, April 1.

  1. It would be useful if this page and the Belle II Registration Procedure pages could be merged.

    1. ... the other pages don't give detail about the required KEK steps (caused some confusion for me).
