KIAA workshop on Astroparticle Physics

The long-standing quest for understanding the fundamental laws of Nature has motivated the new field of Astroparticle Physics where observations of the Universe are used to probe particle interactions. The central goal of astroparticle physics is actually to understand the Universe in the level of quarks and leptons, the fundamental particles in the standard model of particle physics.

In order to provoke discussion and foster collaboration especially between members of Kavli Institutes, KIAA (Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Peking University) held a workshop on Astroparticle Phsics during Sept. 28 to 29, 2015. More than thirty experts from China, United States and Europe participated in the workshop.

The workshop was proposed and organized by both Prof. Angela Olinto at University of Chicago and Prof. Renxin Xu at Peking University.
