International school of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics (ISCRA)
30/07/2022 - 07/08/2022
The International school of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics (ISCRA) holds biennial courses for graduate students and young researchers that stress the inter-relationships between sub-disciplines in Astrophysics, Particle Physics and Cosmology and focus upon recent results from different specialty areas.
The ISCRA is not a conference or a workshop, but is a School that provides lectures by outstanding scientists who cover the latest results and also the background and steps that lead to them. Everyone is encouraged to question the experts both during the lectures and informally over relaxing meals so that one often finds beginners dining with experts in an ambiance of friendship and science that otherwise might never happen. Discussions naturally happen — sometimes a seemingly simple question may pause the expert and in the by and by lead to new research. Additionally many attendees have developed their careers following contacts made at the School. Complementing the lectures is the unique opportunity to talk informally, at coffee and meal breaks, with the experts on subjects that interests the attendee: future ideas, experiences, anecdotes, employment opportunities, etc; often things that never reach scientific literature, but which may have profound impacts on the experts.
