developments in astroparticle physics by invited plenary review talks and
parallel workshop sessions of invited and contributed presentations.
Topics covered by the conference:
- Cosmology and particle physics
- Dark matter and its detection
- Neutrino physics and astrophysics
- Gravitational waves
- High-energy astrophysics and cosmic rays
The international conference TAUP2011 took place from 5-9 September 2011 in Munich, Germany.
