ILIAS/N6-ENTApP - European Network on Theoretical Astroparticle Physics

Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, France

December 12 - 14, 2006

ILIAS/N6-ENTApP is one of the Networking Activities (N6) of the ILIAS Integrated Large Infrastructures Initiative For Astroparticle Science. Its objectives is to increase the level of European coordination and integration in the field of the Theoretical Astroparticle Physics, with a special focus on the areas of activity related to experimental programmes with high priority within ILIAS.

These activities include neutrinoless double beta decay, dark matter, gravitational waves research and related activities.

The 3rd ILIAS/N6-ENTApP meeting will take place at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (IAP), 98bis boulevard Arago, 75014 Paris, France, on December 12 - 14, 2006.

One of the purposes of this meeting was to try to map out overlaps between the ILIAS theory activities mentioned above. Apart from sessions covering the three main topics, we therefore also had a session on interdisciplinary topics such as Indirect Dark Matter Detection and Astrophysical Aspects as well as Gravitational Waves and Neutrinos as Messengers.

After talks ended on December 14 noon, there was an open discussion session on the role of theory within a possible continuation of ILIAS within the 7th framework programme.

The schedule for the individual days (with most of the talks now linked online) can be found below:

Participants who registered can be found here.

Those who asked for support from ILIAS/N6 on the registration page have been contacted if their request can be accomodated by our funds. If yes, they will typically be reimboursed local costs and, in exceptional cases, travel to and from Paris. The maximum hotel prize we can reimbourse is 120 euros per night and the maximum total per day (including hotel) is 150.50 euros. Finally, there will be no registration fee.

For details you can also contact the individual work package coordinators:

WG1: Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay and Related Studies: Amand Fler.
WG2: Dark Matter and Related Studies: Leszek Roszkowski.
WG2: Gravitational Waves and Related Studies: Kostas Kokkotas.
or the N6 Coordinator Günter Sigl.

Accomodation, Hotels:
We would also like to ask you to make your own hotel reservations. Since December is a touristic season in Paris we advise you to do that as soon as possible. A list of hotels with prize information suggested by the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (IAP) can be found here. Please mention that you visit IAP for these. A list of hotels located in the latin quarter and suggested by Collge de France can be found here. These hotels are all located in the Paris downtown area which is very well connected by subway.

Please send remaining reimboursement material to
