The purpose of the School was to promote cosmic ray physics and astrophysics within the Latin American community. These proceedings aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and experimental aspects of Cosmit Ray Physics and Astrophysics. The list of lecture topics includes: experimental techniques, primary spectrum and composition of cosmic rays; high-energy interactions; gamma ray astronomy and GRBs; neutrino astrophsyics; cosmic ray detectors; simulation; solar modulation, and present status of the development and results from several present-day observations such as the Pierre Auger, IceCube, HESS, KASCADE, etc. The proceedings will provide students with a common background, and will give them an updated panorama.
