Scope of the Workshop

The INTEGRAL workshop "A Synergistic View of the High Energy Sky” will take place from 15 - 19 September 2014 in Annapolis, MD., USA.

The workshop is sponsored by ESA and coordinated with NASA, the Russian Academy of Sciences, Roscosmos, and other national space agencies.

The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss (via invited and contributed talks and posters) the latest results obtained in the field of high-energy astrophysics using the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory INTEGRAL, and place these results in the context of other operational space-based missions, such as Swift, Fermi, AGILE, NuSTAR, and Maxi as well as ground-based VHE observatories. Correlative studies in lower energy bands, as well as neutrino- and gravitational wave observations are included as relevant for various source classes. The central focus of thus workshop is the synergistic view of the high energy sky, addressing the following scientific topics:

  • X-ray binaries (involving black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarfs)
  • Isolated neutron stars (gamma-ray pulsars, magnetars)
  • Nucleosynthesis (SNe, Novae, SNRs, ISM) and γ-ray lines, including 511 keV
  • Galactic diffuse continuum emission (including Galactic Ridge)
  • Massive black holes in AGNs (blazars, and the nucleus of the Milky Way)
  • Sky surveys, source populations and unidentified gamma-ray sources
  • Cosmic background radiation
  • Gamma-ray bursts
  • Progress in data processing and analysis
  • Future instruments and missions
