04/11/2016: ISAPP PhD School Texel, 26 June – 5 July 2017, Registration Open

We would like to draw your attention to the next ISAPP Doctoral School which will be held next summer in Texel (The Netherlands):

ISAPP 2017 (Texel): The Dark and Visible Side of the Universe

26 June – 5 July 2017

De Krim Holiday Park, de Cocksdorp, Texel (The Netherlands)

We invite you to forward this message to potentially interested students and young postdocs.

Every year, the ISAPP European network (http://isapp.ba.infn.it) organizes doctoral schools addressed to students – theorists, experimentalists and observers – in the astroparticle physics domain.  This school is organized by the GRAPPA Institute at University of Amsterdam and by the Radboud University in Nijmegen. It will be held on the beautiful island of Texel, located off the northern coast of The Netherlands.

The school is dedicated to the particle and astroparticle aspects of dark matter in the Universe as well as high-energy astrophysics with a multi-messenger approach. The lectures cover a wide range of relevant topics including sources, acceleration, propagation and detection of cosmic rays, gamma-ray and neutrino astrophysics, astroparticle statistics, the production and distribution of dark matter, and the current status of indirect and other dark matter searches. They will cover both the theoretical/phenomenological and experimental/observational aspects, in order to give an exhaustive overview of this complex field.

The schedule is organized in slots of 1.5 hours lectures (intended as 75 min of teaching, followed by 15 min of discussion with the students). Discussion sessions, placed at the end of most of the lecture days, as well as various student projects, are further devoted to stimulate dialogue amongst students and between students and teachers. Details on the program will be available on the School webpage.

Students are encouraged to bring posters showing their own research work, which will be presented and discussed in dedicated poster sessions.

The School is addressed to PhD students and early postdocs working in the field of dark matter, particle physics, high energy astrophysics and astroparticle physics in general.  A letter from each registrant’s advisor is required to finalize the registration process.

Attendance is limited to 48 participants.  Applications should be sent through the registration form on the School webpage before 1st February 2017.
