11° IBWS INTEGRAL/BART Workshop

IBWS 2014 is 11th in the series of successful workshops dedicated to high energy astrophysics and supporting ground-based experiments (e.g. robotic telescopes). The workshop will be held in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad),  Czech Republic, April 22 – 25 2014. The IBWS is expected to start with welcome cocktail in the evening, April 22, the scientific sessions will start in the morning, April 23. The workshop will include Small satellite day on 23.4., with the objective to bring together scientific experimenters and payload providers with the small satellite designers and realizers.

Originally, the IBWS (INTEGRAL/BART) workshops focused on the work of High energy astrophysics group in Astronomical Institute, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and relevant international collaborators from the field, with strong student participation. Nowadays, the IBWS workshops promote regional collaboration in high-energy astrophysics with emphasis on interface between satellite projects and ground-based experiments (e.g. robotic telescopes).

TeV Particle Astrophysics 2013

TeV Particle Astrophysics (TeVPA) is an annual international meeting in particle astrophysics. The UC Irvine particle physics and astrophysics groups will host TeVPA in 2013 at Irvine, California.

This meeting will focus on topical issues in:

  • sources and propagation of cosmic rays,
  • high-energy gamma rays,
  • multi-wavelength probes of high-energy astrophysics,
  • high-energy neutrino physics
  • searches for dark matter.

The Fast and the Furious

High-energy observations have strongly changed our view of isolated neutron stars, showing that these objects appear in a large variety of different classes and can exhibit substantial variability on time scales from milliseconds to years. Changes in flux and morphology have also been observed in the nebulae powered by the relativistic winds of energetic pulsars. Great advances have also been obtained in high-energy observations of non-thermal emission from supernova remnants. The study of these objects in the last few years has taken advantage of a multiwavelength approach, thanks to the combination of powerful X-ray satellites, such as XMM-Newton, Chandra, Swift and Suzaku, with facilities operating in the gamma-ray range (INTEGRAL, Agile, Fermi) and up to the highest energies covered by ground based Cherenkov telescopes (HESS, MAGIC, VERITAS). The purpose of this Science Workshop is to discuss our most recent results on the high-energy phenomena occurring in isolated neutron stars and related objects like pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants and gamma-ray binaries.

Topics:

I.

High-energy emission from rotation powered neutron stars
II. Multiwavelength properties and unification scenarios for different classes of neutron stars: Radio Pulsars, Magnetars, X-ray Dim Isolated Neutron Stars, Central Compact Objects in SNRs, etc..
III. Energetic phenomena in non-accreting neutron stars and their effects on the surroundings: Jets, Pulsar Wind Nebulae and their variability, gamma-ray binaries, etc..
IV.

Open questions and prospects for future missions/experiments
