Summary

The VI School on Cosmic Rays and Astrophysics is part of a series of schools held in Latinamerica since 2004. The schools have the aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and experimental aspects of cosmic ray physics and astrophysics to the Latin American community. This time the school will be complemented with the ICTP-UNACH-UNESCO Seminar of theory on Particle and Astroparticle Physics. It is directed to undergraduates, postgraduates and active researchers in the field. The organization is being done by MCTP.

Topics
  • Dark Matter: theory, phenomenoloy and experiments
  • Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs)
  • X-Rays
  • Gamma-rays
  • Neutrinos
  • CR above the knee and beyond
  • CR in accelerators
  • CR detection with Spaceborn detectors
Registration

The school is aiming at a limited number of participants (around 50). The registration can be done at: http://goo.gl/forms/aDBt2ceWjp. Priority will be given to participants staying the whole period (17th-25th).
