  • CTA symposium 2019-02-08

    The theme for the First CTA Symposium is “Science opportunities with CTA” and will take place at the historical Teatro Duse in Bologna 6-9 May 2019 (https://www.cta-symposium.com). It will focus on the novel investigations CTA will bring to the field and its synergies with other wavebands and messengers. It will also cover instrument characteristics, analysis tools and opportunities for guest investigators and how coordinated observations with CTA will have a significant impact on the...
