Suzaku-MAXI 2014 - Expanding the Frontiers of the X-ray Universe
Start date: 19 Feb 2014
Address: Nanka Memorial Hall, Johoku Campus, Ehime University, Matsuyama, Japan
Considering the fruitful high-energy astrophysics results from two Japan led missions, the first Suzaku and MAXI conference, "Suzaku-MAXI 2014 - Expanding the Frontiers of the X-ray Universe", is organized in Matsuyama, a historical city in Shikoku island.
The meeting will highlight results from Suzaku (the Japan/US X-ray observatory operating in orbit already for more than eight years) and MAXI (an all-sky X-ray monitor on the Japanese Experiment Module, "Kibo", of the International Space Station), and synergistic results from the two missions. The meeting will also emphasize synergies with other existing observatories, XMM-Newton, Chandra, Integral, Swift, Fermi, NuSTAR, and ground-based TeV, as well as with anticipated new missions: ASTROSAT, eROSITA, and particularly ASTRO-H. And possibly ATHENA+.
