The interface between particle physics and cosmology, known as astroparticle physics, can play a key role in our understanding of the universe. This international school, co-sponsored by the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) and the Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory (SCC), was proposed as an effort to co-ordinate the explosion in knowledge and attract researchers to this discipline.
