Abstract: Cosmic rays are the most outstanding example of accelerated particles. They would represent by far the most important energy transformation process of the Universe.  Up to now, the VHE emission has been firmly detected by many ground-based experiments, including both air shower arrays and Cherenkov telescopes.

The Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO) is a leading ground-based experiment, and has been playing an important role in this field.  Inspired by this, Prof. Giuseppe Di Sciascio is going to give us a lecture on the Detection of Cosmic Rays from ground.
