This conference is organized so as to highlight unifying physical themes among the multitude of astrophysical sources and observations. Focusing mainly on the results obtained with Suzaku, the conference will also cover new results from related missions: Chandra, XMM-Newton, INTEGRAL, Swift, Fermi, and others. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Particle acceleration in cosmic shocks and jets (SNRs, Blazars,GRBs,..)
  • X-ray diagnostics of cosmic hot plasmas (Galactic diffuse, SNRs, clusters,..)
  • High Energy Aspects of the Milky Way
  • Magnetic activity in stellar objects (pulsars/magentars, WDs, stellar flares,.. )
  • Primary and reprocessed emission from accreting objects (BHBs,LMXBs, ULXs, AGNs, ..)
  • X-ray views of the evolution of the universe (GRBs, AGNs, clusters, ..)
  • Highlights from the Fermi Space Gamma-Ray Telescope
  • Status of the MAXI experiment
  • From Suzaku to ASTRO-H and other missions, and further to IXO

Immediately following the Suzaku conference a one-day meeting on the future mission, the International X-ray Observatory (IXO), will be held on 3 July.
