Seventh edition of New World in Astroparticle Physics

The Seventh International Workshop on “New Worlds in Astroparticle Physics” will be held from Tuesday, September 08th through Thursday, September 10th, 2009 and will take place in São Tomé e Príncipe.


The Seventh International Workshop on “New Worlds in Astroparticle Physics” is organized by Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas (LIP) and the Centro Multidisciplinar de Astrofísica (CENTRA).
The meetings on "New Worlds in Astroparticle Physics", which started in 1996 and were  previously held every two years in Faro, Portugal, put together experimental and theoretical physicists from particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. São Tomé e Príncipe (whose official language is Portuguese) is a small island nation off the Atlantic coast of Central Africa, in the Gulf of Guinea, straddling the Equator, where during the sun eclipse of 1919, Eddington made the famous observations of light deflection.
