First Mexican AstroParticle School (MAPS)

MAY 8-12, 2017

Central State Library of Guanajuato “Wigberto Jimenez Moreno”. León, Guanajuato, México.

The aim of this school is to provide theoretical, computational and experimental tools to students, posdocs and researchers, interested in answering fundamental questions on astroparticle physics confronting theoretical models with observations and experimental data.

Participants will attend theoretical courses and plenary talks on the state of the art  of astroparticle observatories such as HAWC and the Pierre Auger Observatory. Furthermore, there will be hands-on sessions, guided by experts, to develop projects in which participants will approach frontier research in astroparticle topics. 

There is not attendance fee but registration is mandatory, please fill in the form. Students, posdocs and researchers are welcomed. A small number of scholarships are available to selected students.

This first edition of MAPS is part of the interdisciplinary school MexiCOPAS and is organized as an event of the División de Ciencias e Ingenierías de la Universidad de Guanajuato Campus León.
