FIVE YEARS OF INTEGRAL
A Science Workshop in Sardinia
Chia Laguna (Cagliari), October 17th - 19th, 2007
The ESA INTEGRAL mission successfully performs observations of the high-energy sky since its launch on October 17, 2002. We plan to celebrate this at INTEGRAL's 5th anniversary with a 3-day science workshop in Sardinia/Italy. The workshop will be organized in sessions dedicated to the topics of
- INTEGRAL's Sources Across the Sky, in general
- HE Sources in the Galactic-Ridge
- AXPs, Magnetars, and Pulsars
- Accreting Binaries and Transients
- Positron Annihilation
- Nucleosynthesis in the Galaxy
- Supernovae and SNR
- Nonthermal Particle Accelerators
- Active Galaxies and Blazars
- Cosmic Diffuse Background Emission
- other topics (such as Solar Flares and Gamma-Ray Bursts)
Also, INTEGRAL's Achievements and Mission Perspective will be addressed by additional talks from INTEGRAL team members. This workshop will be informal and dedicated to scientific discussions; presentations will be made publicly available, but no Proceedings book will be generated.
