Description

We cordially invite you to attend the A+M    'Astrophysics and MAGIC (A+M)' Conference, which will focus on presentations highlighting the technical and scientific accomplishments in physics of cosmic and gamma rays, in cosmology, neutrino and gravitational waves and the newly born multi-messenger astronomy. We consider a scientific conference to be a most suitable setting for celebrating 15 years of MAGIC IACT operation.

The event will take place on June 26th - 29th, 2018, at H10 Hotel Taburiente Playa, La Palma, Canary Islands.

If you want to join us, please register on this webpage.
