International Conference on Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP)

The 17th International Conference on Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP), one of the main biennial conferences of the experimental particle astrophysics community, will be held from August 26th to September 3rd. The conference covers recent experimental and theoretical developments in astroparticle physics, in particular:
– Cosmology and particle physics
– Dark matter and its detection
– Neutrino physics and astrophysics
– Gravitational waves
– High-energy astrophysics and cosmic rays
AstroCeNT team members will also take part in TAUP.
On 26th of August Dr Marcin Kuźniak, the leader of Research Group 1, will have a talk about status of the DEAP-3600 experiment – a single-phase liquid argon dark matter detector operating 2 km underground at SNOLAB in Sudbury, Canada. Dr Kuźniak’s talk will present the latest results from DEAP-3600, the status of the ongoing analyses, as well as of the hardware upgrade.
On 30th of August Dr Cenk Turkoglu, postdoctoral researcher at AstroCeNT Research Group 1, will present his poster with the optical simulation model of the DarkSide-20k (a rare-event search experiment dedicated to finding signals of dark matter particles) Veto detector.
TAUP 2021 is hosted by IFIC, a joint research centre shared by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the University of Valencia (UV), in collaboration with other national institutions involved in astroparticle physics.
