During the Evolution 2014 Workshop four central themes in the field of galaxy evolution will be explored by bringing together current and future studies with ALMA and from across the electromagnetic spectrum from existing (e.g. VLA/GBT/IRAM/CARMA, HST, Spitzer/Herschel, Chandra/NuStar) as well as future facilities (e.g., JWST, MeerKAT/ASKAP/SKA, LSST, EUCLID, TMT/GMT/EELT, CCAT/LMT).

Exploration of the high-energy Universe has experienced dramatic progress in recent years, spearheaded by the latest generation of X-ray and gamma-ray instruments. This trend looks to continue in the next decades, with a variety of advanced, new facilities being planned. Although the scientific link between the neighboring energy bands of X-rays and gamma rays has been invariably crucial, the growth and diversification of the fields has meant that the inter-communication nowadays among the respective communities is not always ideal. With a special focus on next-generation observatories of the near future such as the Cherenkov Telescope Array and ASTRO-H, this workshop aims to bring together experts in X-ray and gamma-ray astrophysics, in order to overview the latest observational and theoretical developments and intensify the inherently synergistic interplay between these fields.
Topics of the meeting will cover:
- Gamma-ray universe: HESS, MAGIC, VERITAS, Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), etc.
- X-ray universe: Chandra, XMM-Newton, Suzaku, NuStar, ASTRO-H, MAXI, etc.
- Galactic sources: Supernova remnant, Pulsar, Pulsar wind nebula, Binary, Galactic center, Fermi bubble
- Extragalactic sources: Gamma-ray burst, Active galactic nucleus, Star burst galaxy, Cluster, Background, Cosmic ray, Dark matter
