ARENA 2022

9th International Workshop on

Acoustic and Radio EeV Neutrino Detection Activities

Tuesday June 7th - Friday June 10th, 2022

IGFAE & USC, Santiago de Compostela, Spain

 First Bulletin: February 20th 2022

 1) General Information:

The ARENA workshop series is dedicated to acoustic and radio detection methods and their application to the observation of neutrinos and cosmic rays at ultra-high energies.

The ARENA 2022 workshop will be an in-person conference held in Hotel NH Collection Santiago de Compostela in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, from Tuesday June 7, 9:00 until Friday June 10, 14:00.

This event will be held in lieu of the ARENA 2020 that had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The venue is a privileged location in Santiago de Compostela, near North Campus of University of Santiago de Compostela, and less than 5 min. walking distance to the Cathedral and the historic old town of Santiago.

3) Scientific Program and Abstract Submission

All oral presentations will be organised in plenary sessions. Abstract submissions are invited through the workshop webpage with the deadlines given below. A poster session may be organised depending on requests for poster presentations and depending on whether the available time slots are sufficient to accommodate all accepted presentations.

The workshop covers the following topics, comprising theory, simulation, and existing and future experiments:

  • Radio-detection of Ultra-high-energy (UHE) neutrinos and cosmic rays 
  • Acoustic detection of UHE neutrinos
  • Experimental techniques of acoustic and radio detection
  • Radio-emission from particle showers in dense media/air (theory & simulation) 
  • Other detection technologies (microwave, radar, ultrafast magnetic sensing...)
  • Interdisciplinary relations: radio and acoustic techniques used in other fields of science

4) Registration and Important Dates

Registration will be opened on March 1, 2022 via the workshop indico webpage:
