CTA: First Science Symposium

Bologna, Italy 6–9 May 2019

The theme for the First CTA Symposium is “Science opportunities with CTA”. Through a combination of invited and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions, the meeting aims to gather the larger multi-wavelength and multi-messenger communities and set up new channels of communications and synergies among them and their results (see the preliminary programme). Registration is now open and there is also a call for contributed talks.

The call for contributed talks covers the following areas:

- cosmic particle acceleration;
- compact objects and relativistic shocks;
- role of cosmic particles in galaxy evolution and star-forming systems;
- gamma rays as cosmic probes;
- fundamental physics;
- multi-wavelength and multi-messenger observations;
- any other topic connected to the scientific possibilities of CTA.

Registration is open until 19 April 2019 and the deadline to submit abstracts is 10 March 2019. Further details are available on the symposium webpage.
