The 2022 edition of the Paris-Saclay Astroparticle Symposium takes place from October 31 to November 25, 2022 at the Pascal Institute. The organization of this event was made possible thanks to grants from P2IO, the P2I graduate school of the University of Paris-Saclay, IN2P3, APPEC and CEA. This symposium was a great success in 2021: nearly 230 researchers participated, either by being present at the Pascal Institute (about 30 per week, some staying several weeks), or by participating via videoconference.
The symposium is intended for researchers specialized in the field of Astroparticles, who are invited to come and work at the Institut Pascal in order to initiate, pursue or finalize research projects and publications. The format of this symposium is particularly adapted for this purpose with a limited number of sessions dedicated to lectures and a large amount of time reserved for group work.
The 2022 edition lasts 4 weeks: each week is focused on a different theme and is organized as follows: each day is an informal discussion of about 2 hours, on a specific topic, led by one or more specialists; one day per week is dedicated to presentations by participants who wish to present their work.
The topics covered each week are as follows (details of the different sessions are available on the event's website:
- Week 1 : Dark matter, experiments meet theories
- Week 2 : Early and Late universe cosmology
- Week 3 : Transient multi-messenger phenomena
- Week 4 : High and ultra-high energy cosmic-rays
In parallel, scientific colloquia are organized once a week. These colloquia are open to all and details of the presentations can be found here.
In addition, a cycle of five conferences for the general public, given by recognized external speakers, has been organized. These conferences take place in the evening, at the Institut Pascal.
