The ISAPP school on "Astrophysical sources of cosmic rays" will be held at the Institut Pascal, within the Université Paris Saclay, France. The goal of the school is to offer a general overview on topics in high energy astrophysics related to cosmic rays, from observations to the modelling of high-energy particle sources. It will particularly focus on mult-messenger observations, at the dawn of the CTA era. The school is primarily aimed at PhD students working in this field, as well as young postdocs.

The scientific program consists of lectures including introductory pre-courses on particle physics and astrophysics. It will also include a few hands-on sessions, and some time will be dedicated to students research projects to be carried out in small groups.

Deadline for preregistration: February 1st 2022

Key topics:

  • Introductory courses in astrophysics, particle physics and statistics
  • Physics of high-energy showers
  • Radiation, acceleration, propagation mechanisms
  • Galactic sources
  • Extragalactic sources
  • Cosmic ray probes of fundamental physics
  • Cosmic ray and gamma-ray detections: ground and space-based
  • CTA + visit to CTA-related infrastructures at Paris-Saclay
  • Multi-messenger approach
  • Neutrinos: detectors and results
  • Gravitational waves: detectors and results
  • Hands-on sessions
  • Student research projects
  • Public lecture [TBD]
