Modern cosmology requires dark matter (DM) to explain the structure of the visible universe. The nature of DM is totally unknown. One attractive candidate put forward by theory is a weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP), which could be a thermal relic of the Big Bang. The supersymmetric extension of the standard model provides one of the major candidates for DM. With this consideration, world ... More

Following the first observation of PeV neutrino events and successful measurements of high energy extraterrestrial neutrino flux in the energy region between a few tens of TeV and PeV significantly above the atmospheric neutrino background flux by IceCube, the field of neutrino astrophysics is becoming more and more active. In this contribution, I summarize the recent experimental results from cos ... More

Many dark matter (DM) models predict that DM in a broad range of astrophysical settings could annihilate or decay into Standard Model particles at rates that would be detectable by contemporary telescopes and cosmic-ray experiments. I will review the status of indirect DM searches with a special focus on recent experimental and theoretical developments. I will also consider future observations tha ... More

The search for sharp features in the gamma-ray spectrum is a promising approach to identify a signal from dark matter annihilation over the astrophysical backgrounds. In this talk we review different scenarios leading to sharp gamma-ray spectral features and we discuss the current experiments limits as well as the prospects for detection with future instruments.

Our knowledge of the extragalactic gamma-ray sky is evolving very rapidly as new data becomes available. I will present recent results on the gamma-ray emission from extragalactic sources based on the latest Fermi-LAT catalogs (3FGL-3LAC and 2FHL), on new large samples of multi-frequency selected gamma-ray and VHE emitting blazars (1WHSP and 2WHSP), and from extensive Monte-Carlo simulations of g ...

The High Altitude Water Cherenkov Observatory (HAWC) is a new and novel TeV gamma-ray detector that was recently completed and began full operation in March 2015. Located on the Sierra Negra volcano, Puebla, Mexico, at an elevation of 4,100m, HAWC is optimized for the detection of gamma rays in the 0.1 - 100~TeV range. It's 2sr field-of-view and >90% duty cycle make HAWC an ideal instrument for su ... More

The presence of dark matter in spiral galaxies was inferred long ago by measuring the rotational speed of the gas across each galaxy. Applying the same technique to the Milky Way, a spiral itself, is much more challenging due to our peculiar position and thus the Galactic distribution of dark matter remains poorly constrained to this day. In this talk, I shall introduce two important developments ... More

IceCube's discovery of a diffuse flux of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos has vitalized the emerging field of neutrino astronomy, but many questions remain unanswered. The source populations remain unidentified, and other expected astrophysical high-energy neutrinos, such as those from the GZK process, remain undetected. Details of the energy spectrum and flavor composition also are yet to be ... More

The Telescope Array (TA) experiment is located in the western desert of Utah, USA, and observes ultra high energy cosmic rays in the northern hemisphere. The experiment observes cosmic ray air shower at energies > 1 EeV using the fluorescence telescopes and the surface detectors. From first 5 year data, an anisotropy called "Hot spot" in arrival direction of cosmic ray was found at energy >57EeV. ... More

The CALorimetric Electron Telescope (CALET) space experiment, which had been developed by Japan in collaboration with Italy and the United States, is a high-energy astroparticle physics mission on the International Space Station (ISS). The primary goals of the CALET mission include investigating possible nearby sources of high energy electrons, studying the details of galactic particle propagation ... More

Track: Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays
The Pierre Auger Observatory has been designed to investigate the origin and nature of Ultra High Energy Cosmic rays with energies from 1017 to 1020 eV. We will review some seletected recent results obtained from data of the Pierre Auger Observatory and discuss the implication of these results for assembling a consistent description of the composition, origin and propagation of cosmic rays. We wil ... More
