Please use your real name when signing up, and if possible an institutional email address. This will make it easier for us to verify your identity.

Previous issues of the newsletter are published below.

Continuing our regular EuCAPT newsletters, this is our October issue.

The newsletter is aimed at keeping you informed of recent/upcoming

theoretical astroparticle physics related developments, with focus on Europe.

General News:

The new date for the Inaugural EuCAPT Symposium is

5-7 May 2021 (a hybrid format is planned).

Recent Press Releases:

Recent months have seen quite a few major astroparticle physics results:

It's a pleasure to kick-off our monthly EuCAPT newsletters, which will be sent out around 22nd of each month. The aim of these newsletters is to keep you efficiently informed of recent/upcoming theoretical astroparticle physics related developments in Europe.


General News:

EuCAPT symposium -- due to the present Covid-19 pandemic situation, our first symposium has now been postponed. We are presently arranging for this meeting to be moved to Spring next year (in a likely hybrid format - more information soon to follow).


Recent Press Releases:

Summer 2020 has seen quite a few major astroparticle physics results:

https://www.appec.org/latest-news

I take advantage to note a few results specifically:

"The Universe' largest particle accelerators are a whole lot bigger"

"Strange gamma-ray heartbeat puzzles scientists"


Upcoming Events:

The EuCAPT webpage provides an up-to-date list of upcoming European astroparticle physics events:

https://www.eucapt.org/events

Additionally, we would like to highlight:

PONT Avignon 2020 conference (7-11 Dec 2020)

"Virtual Axion Institute"- mattermost discussion forum (+ recorded presentations)


Upcoming Seminars:

Similarly, the EuCAPT webpage provides an up-to-date list of upcoming astroparticle physics seminars scheduled in Europe:

https://www.eucapt.org/virtual-meetings

If you would like to add a seminar series to this list, please contact david.marsh@fysik.su.se.

Please also note the interesting broad audience talks:

"Mistakes on the way to a good idea: Peccei-Quinn Symmetry. A tribute to Roberto Peccei” (24 Sep @6pm CET):

"Two-body dynamics and gravitational waves in general relativity" (28 Sep @9am CET- registration necessary)
