XIV International Conference on
Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics
7-11 September 2015 — Torino — Italy
The biennial TAUP series covers recent experimental and theoretical developments in astroparticle physics by invited plenary review talks and parallel workshop sessions of invited and contributed presentations.
Topics covered by the conference are:
Cosmology and particle physics
Dark matter and its detection
Neutrino physics and astrophysics
High-energy astrophysics and cosmic rays
TAUP 2015 will be held in Torino, Italy, on 7-11 September 2015. The scientific program will comprise 32 plenary review talks given by invited international experts. Recent developments in fields addressed by the conference will be covered in parallel sessions, comprising contributed talks by international participants and a dedicated poster session. Contributed talks will be selected based upon application, by invited international conveners. The conference will also include a dedicated poster session. All contributions to the conference will be published online in peer-reviewed proceedings.
Congratulations to Prof. Takaaki Kajita and Prof. Art Mc Donald for the award of the
Nobel Prize in Physics 2015.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 recognises Takaaki Kajita in Japan and Arthur B. McDonald in Canada, for their key contributions to the experiments which demonstrated that neutrinos change identities. This metamorphosis requires that neutrinos have mass. The discovery has changed our understanding of the innermost workings of matter and can prove crucial to our view of the universe.
