The Spring 2015 IceCube Collaboration meeting will be in Madison, WI at Union South from April 25 to May 2nd. The international IceCube community will discuss the present and future of neutrino astronomy at the South Pole. Featuring talks from physicists and engineers, the most recent IceCube research results as well as the status of and future improvements to the detector’s maintenance and operations will be presented. Scheduled plenary sessions will also extensively cover the development of next-generation IceCube projects.
We are pleased to announce that the IceCube Particle Astrophysics Symposium: Cosmic Neutrinos, What Next?, organized by the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC), will take place in Madison, Wisconsin, from Monday, May 4 through Wednesday, May 6, 2015.
Following the success of the previous symposium, IPA2013, this second event in the IPA series continues the spirit of the historic Telemark meetings on neutrino physics. The topics include: neutrino astronomy and related multiwavelength messengers—cosmic rays, high-energy gamma rays, gravitational waves; neutrino properties (including accelerator-based experiments); and related cosmological and dark matter aspects of particle astrophysics.
The fall 2014 Fermi-VERITAS-HAWC workshop will be held in Madison, WI, at Union South on October 8 and 9. This is the second Fermi-VERITAS-HAWC workshop. The first one was held at the University of Maryland, College Park, on February 11 and 12, 2014. The idea of these workshops is to increase understanding of each collaboration's data-flow process with an eye towards joint efforts. The workshop will be of particular interest, but is not limited to, the analysis of time-domain astrophysics events such as GRBs and AGN flares. Other topics include joint analysis tools for multiwavelength studies.
"Neutrinos Beyond IceCube," a one-day workshop on possible enhancements to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, will be held on Thursday, April 24, 2014, at the Hilton Arlington in Arlington, Virginia. IceCube’s recent discovery of a flux of high-energy neutrinos from outside the solar system marks a turning point for neutrino astrophysics. The workshop aims to bring together lead physicists, engineers, and agency representatives to explore potential additions to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole.
The goal of the Cosmic Ray Anisotropy (CRA) workshop is to bring together different scientific communities to discuss the origin of the anisotropy of cosmic rays and their spectral anomalies in a variety of energy ranges. We invite experts in the detection of cosmic rays on the ground, with balloons, or in space and from a variety of fields — cosmic ray physics, astrophysics, plasma physics, heliospheric physics, interstellar medium, and particle interactions in magnetic fields. Participants will explore scenarios on the origin of cosmic rays and their acceleration and transport in the interstellar medium and in the heliosphere.
The 2011 Cosmic Ray Anisotropy workshop will be held at the Pyle Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI, from October 28 to 29, 2011. The goal of this workshop is to discuss the origin of the galactic cosmic ray anisotropy focusing on the TeV energy range, and to address scenarios of their origin, acceleration and propagation in the interstellar medium and the effects of the nearby galactic environment. The discussion will include the analysis of the latest experimental results.
