12th International Conference on
Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics
5 – 9 September 2011, Munich, Germany


The biennial TAUP series covers recent experimental and theoretical 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 TAUP 2011 took place from 5-9 September 2011 in Munich, Germany. Its exciting scientific program comprised 31 plenary and 173 parallel talks in six workshop tracks, as well as 32 posters. Besides the online agenda listing all presentations and posters with abstracts and slides/posters presented, we offer a compact program booklet (PDF, 1.9 MB) and an abstract booklet (PDF, 0.4 MB).

TAUP 2011 has been conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the ICSU Document “Universality of Science” (sixth edition, 1989) regarding the free circulation of scientists for international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist was excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science.
