Overview Talk

### Description

Construction of the new SuperKEKB B-Factory is now complete. The new collider, presently under commissioning at the KEK laboratory in Japan, is scheduled to deliver the first $e^+e^-$ collisions in the first half of 2018, to open a new era in the arena of physics at the high intensity frontier. We will present some highlights of the physics program, with emphasis on the first collision measurements. We will then present some first preliminary results of SuperKEKB's single beam commissioning and beam background studies. We will describe the performance improvements obtained with the upgrade of the Belle II detector, and present the status of the final phases of the detector commissioning and operation.
