There is only one week left before the start of the 26th Extended European Cosmic Ray Symposium and the 35th Russian Cosmic Ray Conference held at Altai State University.

The organizing committee works literally around the clock, since the list of participants includes researchers from all over the world. Leading scientists from Russia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Denmark, India, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Kazakhstan, China, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Taiwan, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Switzerland, USA, South Africa, and Japan have already confirmed their visit.

The participants have submitted almost 300 reports. The conference will present the latest results obtained by the main world experiments in the following fields: Auger, Telescope Array, IceCube, Yakutsk EAS array, Kascade-Grande, ARGO-YBJ, Tibet Air Shower Array, Baksan Underground Telescope, LVD, Grapes-3, Nevod , Gamma-400, Pamela, Fermi-Lat, AMS-02, CALET, DAMPE, TUS, Nucleon, JEM-EUSO, HAWC, TAIGA, LOFAR.

The scientists of Altai State University will share their research in the field of high-energy astrophysics and remote sensing of the Earth from space, deliver their reports at the same site with world’s prominent researchers, and get acquainted with the latest experimental results. On the one hand, it will be an impressive conference in terms of the presence of the world's leading scientists, universities and institutions. On the other hand, it will bring together many young people, including participants from the Asian part of the country. It is important to note that it is Siberia where the largest experiments on the study of cosmic rays in the Yakutsk complex EAS and in the gamma-astronomical complex TAIGA are carried out in Russia.

One of the purposes of the conference is the discussion of joint scientific projects and the strengthening of interaction between leading collaborations for solving priority problems in the field of space research. For young people, this is the development of scientific communication and research competencies necessary for the inclusion of Russian research groups, including those working in regional universities, in international scientific projects.

The grand opening of the joint scientific forum will be held on July 6 at the concert hall of Altai State University.
