The gamma-Cas phenomenon in Be Stars Strasbourg, 3-5 Sept. 2018

Feb 23 2018

 The nature of the massive Be star with strong and hard X-ray emission, gamma
 Cassiopae, remains enigmatic. In the last decades it became clear, that gamma
 Cas is a prototype for the whole new class of stars - there may be
 thousands of Cas analogues lurking in the Galaxy! ''The gamma-Cas phenomenon
 in Be stars" workshop to be held in Strasbourg, 3-5 September 2018 will
 assemble the experts in magnetism, binary evolution, X-ray & UV observations,
 massive star astrophysics, and stellar disks. The goal of the workshop is to
 obtain a comprehensive overview of gamma Cas analogues, review existing
 theoretical scenarios on the origin and physics of these objects, and pave
 new ways to finally resolve the gamma Cas puzzle. We invite everybody to join
 this 3 day intensive workshop and try your luck in cracking one of the
 outstanding problems in modern stellar astrophysics.

 Registration and abstract submission are open. Registration is open until June 15 2018
