Exploring the Hot and Energetic Universe: 2nd Athena conference.

Fecha del evento: 
Lun, 24/09/2018 - Jue, 27/09/2018
Palermo (Italy)

Athena (the Advanced Telescope for High-Energy Astrophysics) will continue the series of large X-ray observatories inaugurated by Chandra and XMM-Newton, offering transformational capabilities in several key areas. It is the second large-class ESA mission (L2), and it is planned for a launch towards the end of the next decade.


The organization of the second conference on Athena will give the opportunity to discuss with the astrophysical community its prospective scientific impact, also in the light of possible future X-ray missions (eROSITA, XARM, Arcus …), of synergies with multi-wavelength facilities that will be operational at the end of the next decade, and of the advent of multi-messenger astronomy.

The first announcement already released.


Deadline for abstract submission: Feb. 23, 2018.
