16th Baksan School on Astroparticle Physics

BaksanThe aim of the Baksan School on Astroparticle Physics is to cover topics in both experimental and theoretical astroparticle physics. The program of the school will include three main lecture courses followed by tutorials, practical and discussion sessions, together with several separate lectures, special session for participants presentations and excursion to underground laboratories of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory.

SENSE will participate with a tutorial on SiPMs and a corresponding lecture about their application in astroparticle physics.

The School is addressed at advanced masters students, graduate students and postdocs working in astroparticle physics. The School will be held at a picturesque location in Baksan valley.

International Cosmic Day

ICD2018 general poster smallerThe 7th International Cosmic Day will be on 29th of November 2018.

The International Cosmic Day brings together students, teachers and scientists to talk and learn about Cosmic Rays. During the International Cosmic Day (ICD) students will find answers to questions like: What are cosmic particles? Where do they come from? How can they be measured? Furthermore, own measurements can be performed or provided data can be analyzed and used to participate in the day. Groups all over the world will come together for a video chat to compare and discuss their results. This gives students the opportuniy to work like a real scientist in an international collaboration.

Are you interested? Then participate.

At KIT we will perform some measurements with the show case experiment developed within the SENSE project.

SENSE supports TMG

header zwischenseite 11SENSE supports a local school close to the Campus North of KIT with the fundig of a class set of the German science magazin "Spektrum der Wissenschaft" and cooperates for the development of a show-case experiment. The Thomas-Mann Gymnasium in Stutensee and the Particle and Astroparticle Physics Groups from KIT cooperate already for several years including lectures for the pupils or trips to CERN.

Vienna Conference on Instrumentation


The Vienna Conference on Instrumentation (VCI) will take place from Monday to Friday, February 18-22, 2019 and present the newest developments in detectors for particle, astro-particle and nuclear physics and their applications in biology, medicine, neutron scattering and synchrotron radiation. The deadline for abstract submission is already closed.

The conference proceedings will appear as special volume in the journal Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A.

Astroparticle School 2018 in Obertrubach

atlogoThe Astroparticle School is a well-established school taking place in the region of the Trubachtal, north of Nuremberg in Germany, supporting the further education of students and young postdoctoral scientists in the field of astroparticle physics.

In October 2018, they could celebrate its 15th edition and various professors and guests from whole Europe gave their contribution to the scientific program in topics including among others Gamma astronomy, neutrino physics, multimessenger astrophysics and dark matter.
