Description

We announce the XVII Vulcano Workshop, which will be held from May 20th to May 26th, 2018 in the Vulcano Island (Sicily, Italy).

As in the past editions, the workshop will aim to gather people from High Energy Astrophysics and Particle Physics to discuss the most recent highlights in these fields.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Astrophysics/Cosmology
  • Astrophysics/Gravity
  • Dark Matter & Dark Energy
  • Particle Physics
  • Cosmic Rays
  • Gamma/Neutrino Astronomy
  • Future Prospects

The scientific program will include 25-minute review talks to introduce the current problems giving new experimental and theoretical results.

The participation is by invitation and limited to 80 people.

Participants are expected to arrive at the Therasia Resort (Vulcano Island, Sicily) on Sunday May 20th. Registration will begin at 6:00 pm.
