(Back Issues are available)
The opening ceremony will take place the 30th of August at 6:00pm in the Salone dei Cinquecento
(Hall of the Five Hundreds)
in Palazzo Vecchio.
The conference will be held in Convitto della Calza (Oltrarno Meeting Center) from 31th of August to 3rd of September.

The topic of the Symposium is cosmic-ray physics in its widest meaning; it includes not only charged particles, but also high energy X-rays and gamma-rays, neutrinos and gravitational waves. A major part of the Symposium time will be dedicated to the discussion of those experimental projects that are of main importance for the European scientific community, focusing the attention on large-scale experiments.
The 19th European Cosmic Ray Symposium is organized by the Istituto Nazionale de Fisica Nucleare and the Università degli Studi di Firenze, Dipartimento di Fisica and is supported by Ente Casse di Risparmio di Firenze.

Observations in radio and high energy bands have revealed the existence of nonthermal components, cosmic rays and magnetic fields, in large scale structure of the Universe, and the importance of nonthermal processes has been demonstrated in the studies of relatively nearby clusters. In our efforts to understand these observational signatures, this Conference will review recent progresses in studies of the origin and roles of the nonthermal components in LSS.
- Production and distribution of cosmic rays in LSS
- Generation, evolution and distribution of magnetic fields in LSS
- Role of nonthermal components in LSS
- Observational manifestation of nonthermal processes in LSS
- Simulations of MHD and cosmic ray processes in LSS
- Radio galaxies and AGNs in LSS
- Particle accelerations in LSS

The city of Pune is the cultural capital of the state of
Maharashtra in India and is located about 150 km south-east of Mumbai.
Shielded from the vigour of the Indian monsoon coming from the
Arabian sea, which deposits nearly 200 cm of rain over Mumbai during
June-August, by the 700-1000 m high hill range, Pune will offer
a very pleasant environment for the conference. The travel time by
road from the international airport at Mumbai and Pune is less than
3 hours. The world heritage sites of Ajanta caves and Ellora temple
are only 250 km from Pune. The details about the conference and
the organization are available at the website,
http://www.tifr.res.in/icrc2005 and the secretariat can be
contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
