Fifth Stromlo Symposium - Disks, Winds, and Jets: From Planets to Quasars
Start date: 04 Dec 2006
Address: Mount Stromlo Observatory, Canberra, Australia
The symposium will explore the common physics underlying accretion, energy generation and outflow in different systems such as black holes with masses ranging from a few to several billion solar masses, young stellar objects, the early phases of protoplanetary disks and starburst galaxies. Sessions will cover new theoretical ideas and results and new observational data from space- and ground-based observatories, including Chandra, HST, Gemini, HESS, Keck, Spitzer, Swift, VLT and XMM-Newton.
