Kavli IPMU, Kashiwa, Japan
Asia/Tokyo timezone

The goal of this meeting is to rethink our knowledge of high-energy astrophysics in view of continuing advances in instrumentation. Our view of the universe evolves in response to new observations made possible by improving instruments, and the experimental progress stimulates theories for deeper and more precise understanding. The program will comprise talks and discussions of physics in extreme environments and the role of these physical processes in cosmic evolution. We hope the workshop will provide the participants with a stimulating environment and an opportunity to discuss new ways for advancing our understanding of the energetic universe.
