International Cosmic Ray Workshop
International Cosmic Ray Workshop «TIEN-SHAN 2006» (ICRW «TIEN—SHAN 2006»)
BULLETIN NO. 1
This is the first announcement of the International Cosmic Ray Workshop «TIEN—SHAN 2006» to be hold from August 25 to August 27, 2006 in Almaty city, Republic of Kazakhstan.
The ICRW “TIEN-SHAN 2006” was offered last August during the 29-th ICRC in Pune, and supported by scientists of 8 countries.
The main goal of the Workshop is a wide discussion of new experimental projects on cosmic ray researches at mountain altitudes bearing in mind the present problems of high energy cosmic ray physics.
The participants of the Workshop will have an opportunity to see experimental facilities of the Tien-Shan mountain Station (COSMOSTATION) and learn details of many experiments which are running and planning there. Tien-Shan station allocates at 3340 m above sea level at distance of 40 km from the big city Almaty. It operates since 1961and studies different aspects of high energy cosmic rays. High mountain laboratories have the big advantages (in comparison with sea level labs) in investigation of Extensive Air Showers (EAS) and high energy hadrons.
The Workshop is sponsored by the Russian Ministry of Education and Sciences, «Center for Astrophysical Researches» (CAR, Republic of Kazakhstan), «Institute of Ionosphere of CAR» and Russian Foundation for Basic Researches. It is hosted by the «Tien-Shan Mountain Station» (the branch of P.N.Lebedev Physical Institute) , «Center for Astrophysical Researches» and «Institute of Ionosphere of CAR» at Almaty.
Our aim is to bring together researchers having in common an interest in high mountain experiments on cosmic rays and astrophysics.
The workshop will be organized as a series of plenary half-day sessions. One day will be devoted for visiting Tien-Shan mountain station where the joint Russian-Kazakhstan researches of cosmic rays are performed. A preliminary program will be announced in bulletin no. 2.
