The CORSIKA 8 project is an international collaboration of scientists working together to implement a modern, flexible, robust and efficient framework for the simulation of ultra-high energy secondary particle cascades in matter. While the main application is for simulating cosmic ray air showers, the project aim to useful to other problems in astro(particle), particle and nuclear physics.
Besides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art collection of physics models and algorithms relevant for the field, interfaces to deployment modern multicore processors and hardware accelerators (e.g. GPU) are also planned. This contribution presents the status and roadmap of the CORSIKA 8 project.
