The school is aimed primarily at students and young researchers wishing to build or perfect their knowledge of cosmic rays. Financial support is available for PhD students and CNRS staff can benefit from a support for the stay.
The conference will bring researchers working on theoretical aspects, statistical methods and observational cosmology and will discuss the new directions of fundamental physics and cosmological mysteries which can be addressed from these multi-messenger multi-frequency probes. Along with probing the fundamental aspect of gravity, nature of dark energy, properties of dark matter, primordial gravitational waves, neutrino masses and hierarchy, next-generation missions will also be powerful probes to learn about the astrophysical aspects such as the population of black holes, properties of first stars, reionization history of the Universe, galaxy evolution and the interplay between cosmological and astrophysical effects. The meeting will also discuss future statistical tools and machine learning techniques which will be required to make robust measurements from the data which will be available from the upcoming missions on astrophysical gravitational waves, cosmic microwave background, large scale structure, line intensity mapping, supernovae and many others.
The NDM-2020 aims to be a forum for the discussion and exchange of ideas regarding the particle phenomenology, astrophysical signatures and experimental constraints related to those two fundamental and actively studied issues in particle and astroparticle physics, namely neutrinos and dark matter, and their possible connections.
The goal of the conference is to share the different views from different research communities by balancing contributions from different categories and to encourage collaborations between researchers across the Globe. Ample time is set aside to encourage discussions and collaboration. The meeting consists of invited reviews, invited talks, contributed talks, and posters. The conference also aims at fostering close collaboration via smaller size focus group discussion and excursion. There is also a bootcamp training school prior to the conference for local students.
The IPA2020 conference will bring together experimentalists and theorists to discuss the topics mentioned above with an emphasis on exchange between the different but correlated fields.
In this sense, we would foster inclusiveness in the advancement of astronomy and facilitate the advancement of the next generation of astronomers and scientists, through encouragement of the use of new methods of learning and best practices (including distance education: Moocs) in pedagogy at university level, as well as the use of astronomy for teaching and education at school level, which are part of the definitions of the proposed Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE), which also pursuits the establishment of a Network of Astronomy Education Contacts (NAECs) to provide accessible materials and astronomy literacy guidelines globally. The invited speakers are international leaders in discipline-based education in astronomy and the planetary science, but also in communication, history, inclusion and protection of world’s heritage, including the dark sky.
As with most other sciences, astronomy is being fundamentally transformed by the Information and Computation Technology (ICT) revolution. The data volume is growing exponentially, can be accessed remotely and the observations can be performed even without a real knowledge of a telescope. The new approaches to the data permits the development of new tools, techniques and resources for data analysis and produce discoveries which probably never would be reached with traditional astronomy data analysis period.
