Scientific Programme

A multi-messenger approach is the key to investigate the cosmic ray origin and their acceleration processes. The most recent results from gamma-ray (Fermi, HAWC, H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS), neutrino (IceCube), and cosmic ray (AMS-II) experiments and their theoretical implications will be discussed.

This workshop represents a precious opportunity of exchange between researchers working in the field of gamma ray, neutrino, and cosmic ray astronomy. Time will be allocated to open discussions that will allow the participants to explore scenarios on the origin of cosmic rays and their acceleration and transport in the interstellar medium.

Planned sessions include:

  • Galactic cosmic rays: spectrum / composition / anisotropy.

  • Modeling: particle acceleration and propagation.

  • Multi-wavelength and Multi-messenger search for cosmic ray sources.

  • The galaxy in gamma rays.

  • The future of gamma ray astronomy
