A special Covenant connects the "A.Volta" Centre for Scientific Culture to the "Politecnico di Milano", University of Milano, University of Milano-Bicocca, University of Pavia, Catholic University, Carlo Cattaneo University (LIUC), Luigi Bocconi University, University of Insubria, University of Bergamo and the University of Brescia

Please note that for abstract submission:

For any question about your hotel reservation and registration, please contact the Centro Volta Secretariat

The conference will be dedicated to discussions on observations and results obtained in cosmic ray physics in the energy range from sub-GeV to TeV and beyond, and their implications for fundamental physics, i.e., particle physics, astroparticle physics and cosmology. Among the topics covered by the conference are new results from space-based and terrestrial astroparticle experiments, including searches for dark matter and double beta-decay, a better understanding of the production of ordinary and/or exotic matter, propagation of cosmic rays in the Galaxy and within the solar system, processes inducing trapped particles inside the Earth magnetosphere and their effects, space environment, Solar-Terrestrial physics

The conference is aimed to promote contacts among scientists involved in Solar-Terrestrial physics, space physics, particle physics, astroparticle physics and cosmology both from the theoretical and the experimental approach. The conference will be devoted to physics and physics requirements, survey of theoretical models and of performance of detectors employed (or to be employed) in experiments for fundamental physics, astroparticle physics, astrophysics research and space environment - including Earth magnetosphere and Heliosphere and Solar-Terrestrial physics -. Presentations include the following subjects: advances in physics from present and next generation ground and space experiments, dark matter, double-beta decay, high-energy astrophysics, space environment, trapped particles, propagation of cosmic rays in the Earth magnetosphere, Heliosphere and Galaxy.

 Please be so kind to follow Web implemented procedures for abstract submission, registration and hotel booking.
