"40 years of X-ray bursts: Extreme explosions in dense environments" is a workshop to be held at the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) on June 17-19, 2015.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together world-leading experts (both theoreticians and observers) on Type I X-ray bursts in accreting neutron stars. The goal is to assess the status of the topic and define new challenges for our understanding of X-ray burst physics. The workshop will deal with our understanding of X-ray bursts as a standalone phenomena as well their connection with the surrounding environment, for example in relation to internal heating and cooling of the neutron star or accretion physics.
In order to encourage discussions and maximize collaborations, the attendance to the workshop is limited to about 40 people.
There is no workshop registration fee.
The main scientific topics to be covered are:
Registration and grant application deadline: April 1, 2015
