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)
The SOC consists of:
– Henric Krawczynski
