The goal of the workshop is to provide an updated view on the long-standing enigma of the origin of galactic cosmic rays. In particular, high-energy gamma rays are expected to be emitted by Galactic accelerators of hadronic cosmic rays. Observations of many different types of sources at the highest energies are essential to understand the nature and the total power output of these accelerators.

This is the second edition of a workshop held in Paris in December 2012 on the same subject. For this edition, the workshop will include both invited and contributed talks, together with contributed posters. Proceedings will be published and instructions can be found here


Conference fee

The workshop has a fee of 80 CHF (~65 €) to be paid before the registration deadline.

Thanks to the funds received from SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation), COMAD (Commission Administrative de l'Université de Genève), Société Académique de Genève, CAP (Centre for Astroparticle Physics) and CHIPP (Swiss Institute of Particle Physics), the conference fee has been kept very low (80 CHF). This fee will be used to cover part of the conference expenses as an integration of the financial support received from the Swiss agencies.

Please note that the registration is not complete until the payment is received. Details on the registration and payment can be found here.

Poster contributions

Poster panels will be available and located right outside the conference room. Posters will be exhibited for the entire duration of the workshop. Proceedings (4 pages) are foreseen also for poster contributions.
