The KM3NeT Collaboration is organizing a Town Hall Meeting to promote its multi-messenger programs. KM3NeT is instrumenting two deep-sea neutrino detectors in the Mediterranean Sea, a low energy site ORCA in France (3 GeV; 10 TeV) and a high energy site ARCA in Italy (~1 TeV; >10 PeV).  The construction is in progress on both sites, and by mid of 2020, a larger sensitivity is already expected in the whole energy range compared to the ANTARES detector. Thanks to the unprecedented angular resolution, the extended energy range (few MeV; >10 PeV) and the full sky coverage, KM3NeT will play an important role in the rapidly evolving multi-messenger field. During this workshop, we would like to review the most up-to-date neutrino production models and present KM3NeT performances and multi-messenger programs.

This meeting is organized with the support of the KM3NeT-INFRADEV European H2020 project, the Labex OCEVU, the Aix-Marseille Université, the CPPM laboratory and the Programme National Hautes Energies with funding from CNRS (INSU/IN2P3/INP), CEA, and CNES.
