CRIS is a well established series of topical conferences held every two years.
Initially devoted to the study of relativistic heavy ion collisions, since the fifth edition (2004) the CRIS Conferences have focused the problem of UHECRs in the region of the GZK cutoff.
Recent experimental data published by the Pierre Auger and Telescope Array Collaborations and their interpretation with the leading LHC-tuned shower models have stressed beyond any doubt the complexity of the field proving that obtaining more information on the composition of the cosmic rays will be crucial. Moreover, the interpretation of the UHECR cannot ignore the results at lower energy and the measurements done with other messengers like neutrinos and photons.
CRIS 2015, following the experience of the previous editions, aims to present overviews of existing data of UHECRs and reports from the main experiments currently taking data. At the same time overviews of theoretical models, with different hypotheses on the origin, on predictions for expected neutrino fluxes and related questions of interest in Cosmology will be presented.
Furthermore, the progress in cosmic ray physics from detectors in space and on the ground is expected to play a major role in the scientific program of CRIS 2015.
