Who can participate? 

Every institution or school which has access to a cosmic ray experiment that is capable to carry out one of the measurements described in the program can participate. 

Where and how do I register? 

Local organisers or group leaders should register their group at indico.desy.de/event/icd2016. For registration there is no indico account needed. Only if you want to be able to modify your registration later it is necessary to have one. Note that for each participating group only one person should register. The participanting students are registered at the locations individually.

Do I need cosmic physics knowledge beforehand?

No. All knowledge you need you will learn during the day.  

Is there a fee to participate?
