21st Symposium on Astroparticle Physics in the Netherlands

Europe/Amsterdam

Description
The annual meeting of the Dutch astroparticle physics community will be held this year as a two-day symposium on March 31st and April 1st, 2016 at Kasteel Woerden. This will be the 21st symposium of a series which started in the year 2004. The meetings are organized by the Committee of Astroparticle Physics in the Netherlands - CAN. The idea of these symposia is to form a strong astroparticle physics community in the Netherlands. The symposia give a platform to (PhD) students and postdoctoral researchers to present their recent results to a nation-wide audience and to establish new scientific contacts beyond the own working group. It is also a tradition to have international keynote speakers, reviewing important aspects of astroparticle physics. This meeting will also be the annual meeting of the new NWO research program Waves, Rays, and Particles - WARP.
