Multi-messenger Astrophysics for observing the high-energy universe

Por Teresa Montaruli (Univ. Geneve / Chair of APPEC).

I will describe how photons can be complemented for the observation of the non-thermal universe by neutrinos and gravitational way.

IceCube, with its cubic-kilometric volume deep in the ice of the South Pole, is now monitoring the sky looking for neutrino flares of compact objects like pulsars and black holes.

I will present its recent results on cosmic exploration and on fundamental physics such as neutrino oscillations.

First results of the SNO+ experiment

Por Valentina Lozza (LIP & FCUL).

SNO+ is a large multi-purpose liquid scintillator based experiment, with the main physics goal of searching for the neutrinoless double-beta decay of 130Te.

The first of the three SNO+ phases has started in May 2017, with the detector filled with ultra-pure water. The deep underground location (6000 m.w.e.) and the low background levels, allowed new physics searches and the 8B solar neutrino flux measurement in the 5-10 MeV energy range.

PANIC2020 - Particles and Nuclei International Conference

PANIC2020 will be held in Lisbon from August 31 to September 4, 2020.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.

PANIC2020 consists of plenary talks and a number of parallel sessions. The scientific programme addresses a broad range of topics at the interface between particle, nuclear and astrophysics. Special emphasis will be devoted to recent discoveries and results.
