Science Goals

The Workshop will bring together scientists from around the world to discuss the origin, composition, propagation, and modulation of cosmic rays, focusing on the anisotropy on small and large scales and the effects of interstellar and heliospheric processes on the signal observed at the Earth.


Topics of the Workshop

  • Cosmic ray anisotropy and local sources of acceleration
  • Cosmic ray propagation through interstellar magnetized plasma
  • Cosmic ray interaction with the heliosphere
  • Properties of galactic and interstellar medium and magnetic fields
  • Properties of the heliosphere and astrospheres
  • Recent results on cosmic ray anisotropy observations
  • Analysis techniques in cosmic ray anisotropy studies
  • Gamma rays as probes of cosmic ray acceleration and transport
  • Anomalies in cosmic ray spectrum and composition
