7th Agile Meeting & The Bright Gamma-Ray Sky

Workshop poster


Dear Colleagues,
this is the Second Announcement of the Seventh AGILE Workshop


to be held in Frascati, ASDC-ESRIN
Conference Hall - ESA/ESRIN, Frascati

29 September - 1 October, 2009
The Workshop is aimed at providing an overview of the most relevant recent discoveries in gamma-ray astrophysics, with particular emphasis on the multifrequency (radio, optical, X-ray, gamma-ray and TeV) observations of cosmic sources. We will also focus on how to strengthen the multifrequency response to alerts originating from the gamma-ray experiments.

A series of talks will cover the following topics:

* High energy properties and modelling of AGNs with emphasis on the brightest gamma-ray blazars and multifrequency campaigns.

* Our Galaxy: high-resolution gamma-ray observations and diffuse emission.

* Pulsars, pulsar wind nebulae and Supernovae Remnants.

* Galactic jet sources and black holes.

* Colliding Wind Binaries.

* Gamma-Ray properties of GRBs.

* Terrestrial Gamma-Ray Flashes.

A special session will be devoted to the discussion of current and future multifrequency programs of high-energy sources.

Information on the logistics and a preliminary Workshop program (to be updated shortly) can be found at the webpages:
