The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will host its first CTA Science Symposium 6-9 May 2019 in Bologna, Italy. The symposium will focus on the novel investigations CTA will bring to the field and its synergies with other wavebands and messengers. It will also cover instrument characteristics, analysis tools and opportunities for guest investigators and how coordinated observations with CTA will have a significant impact on the exciting new era of multi-wavelength and multi-messenger astrophysics. Among the field of highly-accomplished speakers that will be in attendance are CTA Spokesperson and Director of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Werner Hofmann, as well as two Nobel Laureates in Physics, Takaaki Kajita and Rainer Weiss.
