EAS 2023 special session SS29: From dormant to ultra-luminous compact objects in X-ray binaries

Fecha: 
14/07/2023
Lugar: 
Kraków (Poland)

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to our Special Session (SS29): 'From dormant to ultra-luminous compact objects in X-ray binaries' that will take place in Kraków (Poland) during the next European Astronomical Society (EAS) Annual Meeting on Friday, July 14th, 2023.

The aim of this Special Session is to bring together both the observational and theoretical X-ray binary experts to obtain a complete and comprehensive state-of-the-art overview of this field. You can find more information in the following link: https://eas.unige.ch/EAS_meeting/session.jsp?id=SS29

We will strive to find answers to important astrophysical questions such as:

  • What allows these systems to be detected across such a wide luminosity range?
  • What are the physical processes behind these luminosities?
  • How do the different types of compact objects influence the physics of accretion?
  • What are the lessons learnt from Galactic XRB population studies and what are the differences with binaries in other galaxies?
  • How will multi-wavelength studies help us characterise the different transient phenomena related to XRBs?

 

This Special Session is divided in 3 different blocks with a duration of 1.5 hours each. We will have 1 review talk and 4-5 contributed talks per block. The fundamental topics are:

  • Observational studies of compact objects in X-ray binaries at different accretion regimes.
  • Theoretical point of view of accretion scenarios in X-ray binaries.
  • Multi-wavelength observations of X-ray binaries.

 

We strongly encourage early career researchers to apply for contributed talks! 

Abstract submission is now open and the deadline is March 1, 2023. Abstracts can be submitted here: https://eas.unige.ch/EAS_meeting/abstract_submission.jsp
 

Registration can be done here: https://eas.unige.ch/EAS_meeting/registration.jsp

We hope that this announcement finds you and your loved ones healthy and well.

All the best,

The SOC of SS29
