The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) gamma-ray observatory is a currently in full operations, surveying the high energy sky on a quasi-permanent basis. Located at an altitude of 4100m, and covering a declination range reaching down to the Galactic Center, HAWC is now able to detect the Crab nebula within a single transit, allowing unprecedented studies of both variable and extended TeV...

High altitude regions in Argentina are available for water Cherenkov gamma-ray astronomy. In the Northwest of the country areas of ~1 km2 have been identified and studied for astronomical purposes at altitudes greater than 3500 masl. Particularly, a site nearby San Antonio de los Cobres (Salta) is being developed for LLAMA, a project in cooperation with Brasil (50/50). LLAMA is a single dish...
Prof. Hisakazu Minakata (Yachay Tech)
In Yachay Tech, a new research oriented university in Ecuador, we are constructing astroparticle physics activities in a wide sense. Obviously, we are interested in the topics of the Puebla meeting, in particular, in the question of how Gamma Ray Astronomy will evolve in South America. The purpose of my talk is to attract the participants' interests in the newly born university Yachay...
