The 2nd International Workshop on
THE HIGHEST ENERGY COSMIC RAYS AND THEIR SOURCES
April 14-16, 2005
(just before the Baksan School on Particles and
NEW: PROGRAM WITH LINKS
Preliminary program (pdf)
Long seminars and informal discussions will cover the
most recent experimental data on the cosmic rays with energies higher than
1019 eV and their theoretical implications.
The topics will include:
and presentations from the 1st Workshop (2004) may be found on its web site.
- development of the atmospheric showers
- energy determination
- primary composition
- arrival directions
- origin and propagation of the UHE particles
Expected: about 40 participants (20 speakers) - both experimentalists from AGASA,
Yakutsk, HiRes, Pierre Auger and theoretical astroparticle physicists.
There is no registration fee.
