There will be lectures focusing on the following areas:

  • Cosmic ray detection
  • Cosmic ray interactions
  • Cosmic ray transport

Confirmed Speakers are: Giancarlo Brunetti, Brian Lacki, Francis Halzen, Katharina Morik, Günter Sigl, and Eli Waxman.


Accompanying the lectures on Cosmic ray transport, interactions, and detection there will be tutoring sessions, which will deal with specific areas of interest.

The topics of the tutoring groups are:

  • Astrophysics
  • Plasma physics
  • Particle physics
