The International workshop on Very High Energy Particle Astronomy (VHEPA) aims at a comprehensive understanding of the high energy universe with a focus on multi-messenger astronomy and astro-particle physics. The workshop brings together experts in cosmic-ray and high energy neutrino physics, and young researchers who are interested in joining this emerging field.

Previous VHEPA workshops have been held at Kashiwa, Honolulu, Hilo and Taipei.

The 10th International Workshop on Very High Energy Particle Astronomy in 2019 (VHEPA2019), will be held  at the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR) on the Kashiwa Campus of The University of Tokyo, Japan, February 18-20, 2019. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss prospects for PeV and EeV astroparticle physics in the multiple-messenger era following recent observations and future projects in the field of Very High Energy Particle Astrophysics.

We welcome your active participation and your attendance from all of you.

JPS Conference Proceedings of VHEPA2014



The 7th International Workshop on Very High Energy Particle Astronomy (VHEPA2014) with the subtitle of ”Next Generation Explorers for Cosmic Ray Origins” was held on the date of March 19- 20, 2014 at the location of Media Hall, Kashiwa Library, The University of Tokyo. VHEPA is a series of workshops aiming for comprehensive study with multi-particle observations toward Very High Energy Particle Astronomy.

The purpose of the VHEPA2014 Workshop is to discuss Next Generation Explorer(s) for Cosmic Ray Origins as subtitled, and to share a common interest in the field with scientists from different countries. We expect front-line invited speakers from around the world to present aspects of forefront research achievements at this Workshop, in accordance with its purpose. Contributions to the Workshop, we believe, will be of great value to all participants.

The International Advisory Committee (IAC) includes F. Halzen (Wisconsin-Madison), T. Kifune (Tokyo), A. Watson (Leeds). The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) includes G. W.-S. Hou (Taiwan), S. Ogawa (Toho) (Chair), M. Sasaki (Tokyo). N. Sugiyama (Nagoya).
