The Joint Space-Science Institute — a collaboration between the University of Maryland and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center — is pleased to be hosting a conference on Multimessenger Astronomy in the Era of PeV Neutrinos. The theme is inspired by the IceCube discovery of a significant sample of high-energy neutrinos from astrophysical sources, but the conference will cover a broad range of topics related to the astrophysics of high-energy neutrino, photon and cosmic ray sources and what can be learned through multimessenger observations.

PANDA Symposia series are aiming at establishing and fostering collaborations among young post doctoral fellows (0-6 years from graduation) from the Pacific/Asiatic scientific community with their peers across the globe. Besides enabling scientific mobility and networking, we are also aiming in providing young researchers with a forum to exchange ideas on current and future projects.
The First PANDA Symposium was a great success. 23 astrophysicists from 9 foreign countries attended, as well as 78 astrophysicists from China. The Symposium was an outstanding international forum for discussion of various topics related to “Products of Astrophysical Outflows”, and addressed some of the most exciting research frontiers of high energy astrophysics. It provided many opportunities for Chinese researchers and advanced students to become acquainted with leaders in these fields and to present their own research results to an international audience. The Second PANDA Symposium will focus on multi-messenger Astronomy, which combines detections of electromagnetic signals from astrophysical sources with high energy neutrinos, cosmic ray (particle) astrophysics and gravitational waves.
Nordita Winter School 2013 in High-Energy Astrophysics – The purpose of this winter school is to provide PhD students and young postdocs in the Nordic countries with introductory courses in a range of the most important topics in the field of theoretical astrophysics.
