Particles and Radiation from Cosmic Accelerators CA2012
February 20 - 22, 2012

Chiba University, Chiba, JAPAN

Objective of the meeting: One of the major challenges in astrophysics is to reveal the origin of cosmic high energy particles and radiation. Our understanding in cosmic high energy phenomena has been deepened recently through the observations by the Fermi satellite, ground based observations by MAGIC,TA, and other instruments, and advances in numerical methods to simulate relativistic plasmas. Furthermore, the horizon of high energy neutrino astrophysics has been broadened by IceCube, which is now in full operation.

In this workshop, we would like to review the progress in high energy astrophysics/astroparticle physics since we held the first workshop on Particles and Radiation from Cosmic Accelerators (CA2005) in 2005, and discuss the prospects for the future. Through this workshop, we hope to push forward the collaboration between the communities of high energy particle astrophysics, high energy astrophysics and plasma astrophysics.
