LOFT, the Large Observatory For X-ray Timing, is one of the four ESA Cosmic vision mission candidates competing for a launch opportunity at the start of 2020s. LOFT will answer fundamental questions about the motion of matter orbiting close to the event horizon of a black hole, and the state of matter in neutron stars.

Following the sccesfuk first science meeting (Amsterdam, October 2011), the LOFT Consortium is pleased to invite the Astrophysics community at large to discover the progresses achieved in the instruments' design and provide an essential contribution to finalizing of the LOFT Yellow Book.

Abstract submission deadline: 25 July 2012
