School on Astroparticle and Underground Science
Sept 4-8, 2013
A 5-day school designed for advanced graduate students and beginning postdoctoral researchers will be held immediately prior to the TAUP2013 Conference.
The school will provided a series of introductory lectures by experts in the field, focused on the themes of TAUP: cosmology, dark matter, neutrino physics and astrophysics, gravitational waves, and high-energy astrophysics. The venue is Asilomar. The school is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the University of California Dark Matter Search Initiative, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory Collaboration, and the Hamamatsu Corporation. These organization have provided the funding to cover the local costs of students accepted into the school.
The school will conclude with a student poster session on Sunday evening, September 8. This poster session will also mark the start of the TAUP conference. Students who attend the school will thus have an opportunity to share their work with TAUP participants. The poster session and accompanying reception will be sponsored by Elsevier Publishing. Elsevier will present a prize for the best poster.
