We plan to put together researchers and students to explore the opportunities of collaboration between Japan and Brazil in two broad fields: particle physics and planetary sciences. Since these subjects are probably of interest of different people, after the two talks associated to each subject, we will divide the audience into two groups to allow an intensive discussion on actions to improve partnership and cooperation in these areas.
