2nd e-ASTROGAM Workshop, joint to AMEGO Workshop: towards a White Book on MeV Gamma-ray Astrophysics

chaired by Alessandro De Angelis (PD), Riccardo Rando (PD), Julie Mc Enery (NASA Goddard)
from to (Europe/Rome)
at Munich ( Ambiance Rivoli Hotel )
Albert-Roßhaupter-Straße 22
This scientific workshop, open to contributions, continues the discussion on the e-ASTROGAM (and AMEGO) science: exploration of the Universe in the MeV domain. After the 1st workshop held in Padova in February 2017, we aim at finalizing our "White Book" on the opportunities of astronomy, astrophysics and astroparticle physics from observations of cosmic gamma rays in the MeV domain.
