RICAP'07, Roma International Conference on Astro-Particle physics at
University "Sapienza" - June 20th - 22nd, 2007, Roma, Italy.

It is the first edition of a series of International Conferences entirely dedicated to high energy cosmic rays study,
organized by the three public Universities of Roma and by the INFN:
University and INFN of Roma "Sapienza",
University and INFN of Roma "Tor Vergata" and University and INFN of "Roma Tre".

In these institutions, indeed, there is an intense activity on Astro-Particle physics,
visible both in the participation to major experimental projects in the field
(AGILE, AMS, ANTARES, ARGO, Auger, GLAST, NEMO, PAMELA, …) and in a deep and fruitful theoretical speculation.

The RICAP Conference will be held every two years.
The first edition will be held at the University of Roma "Sapienza",
the second one at the University of Roma "Tor Vergata"
and the third one at "Roma Tre".


The aim of the Conference is to present and discuss some of the most relevant theoretical and experimental results in the field of high energy cosmic rays. Special attention will be paid to the investigation of the various astrophysical sources, using photons, very high energy cosmic rays and neutrinos as probes (multi-messenger observations). The Conference will give the opportunity to collect experimental results; contributions from presently operating experiments (H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS, PAMELA, Auger, ARGO, ANTARES, Baikal, IceCube, LOPES, ANITA …) are strongly encouraged. Experiments in progress and future projects (AGILE, GLAST, NEMO, NESTOR, KM3NeT, Telescope Array, ASHRA, TUNKA, ...) will be discussed, debating on the different features and on sensitivities. Particular relevance will be given to examine the different source candidates (point sources, transient sources, diffuse flux sources …); comparison of models and discussions will be promoted.


"Sapienza" University is located very close to the Rome center and to the main Rome railway station "Roma Termini", which is directly connected by train and bus to the Rome main airports, Roma Fiumicino and Roma Ciampino.


The proceedings of the conference will be published by Elsevier Science on a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section A (NIMA). The deadline for the submission of the papers is September 30th, 2007. A template for the compilation of the manuscripts using Word processors is available here. Instructions about the compilation of manuscripts using Latex template is available from the Elsevier web page. The length of the manuscript must be 8 pages for plenary talks and 4 pages for parallel and poster sessions. Figures will be printed in black and white.
