In recent years, there are many interesting reported application of using cosmic rays, which include space and earth weather monitoring, non-invasive cosmic ray tomography, soil moisture monitoring, public health, STEM training, etc. Over a century long effort of technology development of cosmic ray detection, especially in the antiparticle physics community, variety of cosmic ray detectors have been developed world-wide with varying size, cost and technology choices.

This workshop aims to bring together experts of cosmic ray detection/simulation and the community of using cosmic ray measurements in any field of applications and to share knowledge and technology. We also hope to establish an international collaboration of building a low-cost and reliable cosmic ray detector (with multi-sensors) network to monitor cosmic ray flux variation in real-time on a global scale.

The topics of this workshop include, but not limited to the following
– Cosmic ray detection and readout electronics
– Cosmic ray simulation and data analysis
– Sensor network
– Applications of using cosmic rays
– STEM training

We look forward to active participation from a broader community. The plan is to carry out productive talks and discussions (information short presentations) interleaved to encourage effective exchange of ideas and knowledge among participants.

Participation is by invitation only. Please address any inquiries about this workshop to Xiaochun He (
