The International Astroparticle Physics Symposium will be a forum to discuss questions such as:
What are the sources of the highest energy cosmic-rays, gamma-rays, and neutrinos?
What are the source locations, spectra and composition?
What are the acceleration
mechanisms? How does propagation affect the observables? What are the intervening
cosmic magnetic fields?
How do particles interact
at the highest observed energies?
What should be the focus of the next generation instruments in this field?
developments in Astroparticle Physics have begun to revolutionize
our view of the most energetic processes in the present
Universe. From TeV gamma-rays, to ZeV cosmic rays, the high
energy frontier is beginning to probe particle interactions
at the highest energies while the most energetic cosmic
accelerators become directly observable. The implications
of these new findings for particle physics and astrophysics
are only starting to become clear. A new era of multi-messenger
particle astronomy is dawning, opening a new window to the
Universe. The time is right for experimenters and theorists
to examine the state of the field.
program includes plenary
sessions by invited speakers
summarizing the state of
the art in high-energy astroparticle
physics. Afternoon workshops
offer the opportunity to
contribute your own views
and results in an open and
inspiring atmosphere. A panel
discussion on future physics
goals and next-generation
instruments will be the highlight
of the symposium.
gratefully acknowledge the
support of the Kavli Institute
for Cosmological Physics
(KICP) and the Kavli Institute
for Particle Astrophysics
and Cosmology (KIPAC) that
sponsor the panel discussion.
