Alsatian Workshop on X-ray polarimetry

From November 13, 2017 until November 15, 2017
Strasbourg, France

The conference will be held from 13-15th November 2017 at Strasbourg, France. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the progress made in X-ray polarimetry, to identify what is missing and to decide what must be undertaken before the launch of IXPE, the first spatial mission carrying an X-ray polarimeter since the 70's. We invite young researchers (PhD students and post-docs) and expert speakers to this workshop aiming to exchange results and methods while facilitating new collaborations that will be perfectly mature on the arrival of the first X-ray polarimetry data.

 

Deadline for abstract submission and registration: August the 1st

The maximum number of participants is 55.

 

Since the conference is designed to promote discussion between young researchers in the field of X-ray polarimetry, conference fees were reduced to a minimum of 50 Euros. They cover a conference kit, coffee breaks and a ticket to the conference dinner. Payment will be possible securely online, after selecting speakers for the conference.

 

Review talks will be given by:

- Martin C. Weisskopf (Introductory talk)

- Sergio Fabiani (Instrumentation and future missions)

- Svetlana Berdyugina (Solar and stellar X-ray polarimetry)

- Jeremy Heyl (Strongly magnetized sources)

- Jeremy Schnittman (Accretion-powered objects)

- Elena Amato (Jets and particle acceleration)
