Status of the novel CORSIKA 8 air shower simulation framework
July 05, 2021
The CORSIKA 8 project is an international collaboration of scientists working together to imple-
ment 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

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.
