CTA symposium

The theme for the First CTA Symposium is “Science opportunities with CTA” and will take place at the historical Teatro Duse in Bologna 6-9 May 2019 ( Through a combination of invited and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions, the meeting aims to gather the larger Multi-wavelength and Multi-messenger communities and set up new channels of communications and synergies among them and their results (preliminary programme available on the website). The call for contributed talks to this First CTA Symposium in now open, and covers the following areas of the field:
– Cosmic particle acceleration
– Compact objects and relativistic shocks
– Role of cosmic particles in galaxy evolution and star-forming systems
– Gamma rays as cosmic probes
– Fundamental physics
– Multi-wavelength and multi-messenger observations
– Additionally, any topic connected to the scientific possibilities of CTA
