The International Particle Physics Group (IPPOG) is a global network active in informal education and outreach in particle physics and related research, including cosmic-ray and astro-particle physics. Since many years, IPPOG has been actively supporting the International Cosmic Day organized by DESY and the International Muon Week organized by Quarknet. In 2015 IPPOG started work on establishing a universal portal through which successful cosmic-ray study programmes can reach out to teachers and students around the world. This common web platform is being developed by IPPOG in the frame of its new IPPOG web pages. It will contain all information for schools interested in taking part in cosmic-ray experiments and analysing real data in classroom; also instructions about how to build, borrow, or purchase cosmic-ray detectors. The platform will also facilitate collaboration and exchanges between the experiments' project managers and advertising of related events.
How to cite
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.
