The International School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics (ISCRA) held biennially at the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Sicily will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2016. Continuing the long tradition of the School (not a conference or workshop) experts chosen not only for their scientific achievements but also for their communication skills, will lecture on topics (specifics ISCRA home page) covering areas of current astrophysical interest, how they developed and how they fit into our understanding of the universe. Complementing these lectures is the unique opportunity to talk informally, at coffee and meal breaks, with the experts on subjects that interests the attendee: future ideas, experiences, anecdotes, employment opportunities, etc; often things that never reach scientific literature, but which may have profound impacts on the experts. Many attendees have advanced their careers following contacts made at previous Schools. Over the last 38 years most of the scientists who now hold influential positions in cosmic-ray astrophysics have attended the ISCRA including five Nobel laureates, most attending before they won the prize. Graduate students and postdoctoral scientists (experiment & theory) are encouraged to register as soon as possible on this INDICO page (for fees etc., please refer to the ISCRA home page) as numbers are constrained by the Centre; late applicants may be disappointed.
