The 12th Cosmic Ray International Seminar (CRIS 2020) will be held in Vietri sul Mare (Amalfi Coast – Italy), 7th - 11th September 2020. The meeting will focus fundamental topics in astroparticle physics with specific emphasis on the new-born multimessenger astronomy studies. The meeting is being organized by the Catania and Napoli Divisions of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), by the Department of Physics "E. Pancini" of the University of Napoli Federico II and by the Department of Physics and Astronomy "E. Majorana" of the University of Catania. The Organizing Committee includes Dr Mario Buscemi and Professor Rossella Caruso, Salvatore Costa, Cristina Tuvè #DFA, among the others.
CRIS 2020, following the experience of previous editions, aims to present overviews of existing data and reports from the present and future experiments. Talks will cover both theoretical/phenomenological and experimental/observational aspects, in order to give an exhaustive overview of this complex field. The discussion about the present status and future plans requires to involve theorists and experimentalists working on various messengers. Thus, the progress in astroparticle physics achieved through space and ground-based detectors is expected to play a major role in the scientific program of CRIS 2020.
The program will include invited lectures, contributed talks and posters, as well.
As in the past, the CRIS 2020 Conference is addressed to scientists in the field as well as to PhD and graduate students. We will encourage lively and informal discussions among participants.
