Timetable | Basic Structure


Abstracts: On the Indico webpage you can create a pdf list/timetable of all abstracts. Indico is open for all.  See the program.
Proceeding Papers: The Procceding Papers are open for everybody here.


The core time span is 14:00-18:00 h in Berlin time (CEST | UTC+2).

To accommodate participants from time zones from Tokyo (Berlin +7 h) to Los Angeles (Berlin -9 h), the conference schedule is centred around  16:00 h  Berlin time. In the core time, plenary presentations are scheduled which are live streamed:

Plenarys: Invited talks, Highlight talks (red)

Invited review talks  (~10 x 45 min),
highlight talks  (~20 x 30 min),
Rapporteur talks  (yellow; 8 x 45 min).


Before and after the core time:

Conference Contributions (short talks or posters) are available online (pre-recorded) throughout the conference and can be viewed at any time.

In topical discussion sessions (green; before and after the core time), contributions that are relevant to the respective topic of the session are discussed. 

Topical discussion sessions are organised in parallel (up to 5 parallels x 12 sessions x 90 min).

All contributions which are not scheduled within the Discussion Sessions will be scheduled for small-group discussions

with the presenter and interested participants during the "Presenter Forum”.
For more information see Q&A "Presenter Forum".

We offer two events and one feature under this rubric.

A master class on how to write a scientific paper, meant for PhD students and young postdocs. This interactive class has two 90-min sessions and is held two times, to suit far western far eastern participants. Participation is limited to 30 persons per masterclass. Please, find more information on our Conference Platform VIMP.

Speed-date a recently tenured physicist  allows young scientists to benefit from the experience of older colleagues in the pursuit of permanent posts in science. In Zoom breakout sessions each tenured physicist answers general and personal questions.

At a Job Board, conference participants can post job adverts and job searches for Astroparticle Physics (and related industries) for Master and PhD students, postdocs and staff, with the idea to allow first contacts between those offering and seeking at the conference.



Celebrate the diversity of thought and experience held within our large, international community through an interactive video project. Interactive means: We need your help! If you can spare just 10 minutes of your time to participate, we would really appreciate it! *Everyone* is encouraged to participate in the project - all genders, ethnicities, ages, abilities are welcome! You can find more information on the ICRC website: For questions, please contact Summer Blot (

Within the conference we will arrange the viewing of the documentary  "Picture a Scientist"   ( It documents structural bias and discrimination of women in science and provides new perspectives on how to make science more diverse, equitable, and open to all. We encourage particpants to view this fascinating and compelling movie and comment own thoughts and experiences. We will schedule a session in which views can be exchanged. Details on the screening and the discussion will follow. 



Sustainability becomes an ever increasing issue in our work and lifes. In a session on  21 Jul at 18:00 on "Sustainability in Astroparticle Physics" we will have four short presentations, followed by an open panel discussion.  The talks give a general intro to the topic, and cover Green Computing,Green Experiments and Conferences and Travel.

Markus Roth (KIT)

Knud Jahnke: General intro into the topic
Volker Lindenstruth: Green Computing
Victoria Grinberg: Conferences/Travel
