Recent developments in astroparticle physics – this is the main theme for the international conference “Topics on Astroparticle and Underground Physics” (TAUP).
Beginning of September, this conference takes place in Munich, where some 350 scientists from all over the world will present the latest observations and results from their work to a large professional audience, covering many fields of modern astro- and particle physics such as cosmology, dark matter, neutrino physics, cosmic rays and gravitational waves. One controversial topic among scientists at the moment are measurements, which could provide the first direct detection of dark matter particles.
Two of the scientific organisers of the TAUP conference will present recent observations and results at the next Café & Kosmos, as well as covering their own research in particle and astrophysics. Thus the audience will receive first-hand information about new findings and can discuss directly with the TAUP experts.
The Café & Kosmos series of discussions is organised jointly by ESO, the Excellence Cluster Universe and the Max-Planck Institutes for Physics, Astrophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics. The discussions usually take place on the second Tuesday of each month at Vereinsheim in Munich. After a brief introduction the scientists take questions from the audience and discuss current issues from the cosmos.
Please note that the Café & Kosmos events take place in German.
