The conference, jointly organized by the Department of Physics of the University of Genova and by INFN-Sezione di Genova, aims at gathering an overview of the status and future prospects of astrophysics and cosmology with a multimessenger approach. The sessions deal with astrophysics with electromagnetic waves, astrophysics with gravitational waves, astroparticle physics and neutrino astrophysics, nuclear astrophysics, cosmology. The sessions and the talks are organised according to astrophysical sources and phenomena: compact objects, neutron star mergers, supernovae, active galactic nuclei, CMB, etc highlighting the current status of the knowledge and the benefit of a multimessenger approach.
Silvano Tosi is a professor at the University of Genoa, with scientific association to INFN and INAF. He carries out research in high-energy physics and astrophysics: he was a member of the BABAR experiment, until 2008 and of CMS, at the LHC accelerator of CERN, since 2008; since 2019 he is a member of Euclid, an ESA mission. He is also involved in optical astronomy. He is a professor of General Physics and Fundamentals of Astrophysics and Cosmology. He also carries out dissemination activities.
