The Mini-EUSO instrument is an UV telescope to be placed aboard the International Space Sta-tion (ISS) in the framework of the JEM-EUSO project. Mini-EUSO will map the Earth in the UV range (300 - 400 nm) with a spatial resolution of 5 km and a temporal resolution of 2.5 μs.
Therefore, Mini-EUSO offers an excellent opportunity to study a variety of physics phenomena such as transient luminous events and meteors, as well as searching for strange quark matter and test the detection of space debris. Mini-EUSO will serve also as a pathfinder for the study of Extreme Energy Cosmic Rays from space. A review on the expected performance of Mini-EUSO in detecting a variety of physical phenomena simulated with the EUSO Simulation and Analysis Framework (ESAF) package is described.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
