New space borne experiments are ushering us into the era of precision direct measurements in cosmic ray physics. However, a poor knowledge of several particle physics and nuclear physics inputs - such as antiproton production or spallation cross sections - can seriously limit the relevant astroparticle physics information that can actually be extracted from these data, for instance for Galactic propagation parameters or indirect dark matter searches. The goal of the workshop, bringing together different communities, is to review theoretical motivations for the measurements of key processes, current galactic models and recent advances in cosmic ray observations that crucially depend on some of these inputs. The workshop also strongly aims at presenting current efforts and discussing forthcoming perspectives for particle/nuclear measurement campaigns.

Duration: The workshop will start Wednesday, March 29 in the late morning, and will end Friday, March 31 at about 4pm.
