X-ray Astronomy 2009 - Present status, multi-wavelength approach and future perspectives
Third in a decadal series of X-ray astronomy conferences held in Bologna, the meeting will highlight the contributions of XMM-Newton, Chandra and Suzaku observatories over the last ten years and celebrate the International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009). Major observational and theoretical aspects of X-ray emission will be addressed from a wide range of cosmic sources. Emphasis will be given to multi-wavelength studies of cosmic sources and associated synergies with major facilities at all wavelengths, and on the perspectives for future high-energy astrophysics missions.
The main scientific topics of the conference are:
