Aim of the School


The purpose of the School is to promote cosmic ray physics and astrophysics within the Latin American community.

This School aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and experimental aspects of Cosmic Ray Physics and Astrophysics. It is open to late-term undergraduate and graduate students, and to researchers interested in learning the essentials of these fields. The list of lecture topics includes: experimental techniques, primary spectrum and composition of cosmic rays; high-energy interactions; gamma ray astronomy and GRBs; neutrino astrophysics; cosmic ray detectors; simulation; solar modulation, and present status of the development and results from several present-day observatories such as the Pierre Auger, IceCube, HESS, KASCADE, etc. These introductory lectures will provide students with a common background, while specialized seminars will give them an updated panorama. Posters will be accepted for presentation by the participants.

The school is organized by the Universidad Nacional de San Agustín (UNSA) and by the Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria (UNI).
