Scientific rationale:
The workshop aims at presenting recent research on the longstanding problems of particle acceleration/transport in astrophysical environments (Sun, heliosphere, galactic/extragalactic sources). We bring together experts in the fields of:
-Observations of energetic particles
-Properties of cosmic ray transport/acceleration
-Flaring phenomena in astrophysics (Solar flares, Crab flares)
-Shock acceleration
-Particle acceleration in magnetic reconnection
-Particle acceleration in accretion flows and relativistic jets
-Transport/acceleration in non-linear regimes
-Magnetic turbulence in astrophysical plasmas
-Theoretical models, numerical simulations of particle transport/acceleration.
