11th Workshop on Science with the New generation
of High Energy Gamma-ray Experiments
The 2016 edition of the SciNeGHE workshops will focus on the study of high-energy gamma-ray sources, including Gamma Ray Bursts, blazars, pulsars, supernova remnants, from a multiwavelength and multimessenger perspective. Particular attention will be given to the connections with gravitational waves, both from the observational and theoretical point of view.
Cosmic messengers, such as photons, neutrinos and cosmic rays, are the key to understand the physics of estreme astrophysical sources such as blazars, pulsars, supernova remnants, and mergers of neutron stars and/or black holes.
The first direct detection of gravitational waves from the merger of two massive black holes has inaugurated the era of gravitational wave astronomy and opened a new chapter in the multimessenger study of the Universe.
Space missions like Fermi, Swift, INTEGRAL and AGILE, and ground-based instruments like H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS and HAWC have revolutionized our view of the gamma-ray sky. They have discovered new populations of gamma-ray emitters and contributed to probe the high-energy acceleration and emission mechanisms at play in these sources. Furthermore, the second generation of ground-based interferometers like Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo, will add complementary informations to fully decypher the laws governing these intriguing and powerful cosmic sources.
Following the tradition of the SciNeGHE workshops, there will be updates on current and planned space-borne and ground-based gamma-ray experiments, and reviews on the status and results of cosmic ray, neutrino and gravitational wave detectors.
The workshop will be organized in plenary sessions of review and contributed talks and poster presentations.
Special attention will be given to contributions from Ph.D. students and young postdocs. In particular three Young Scientist SciNeGHE Awards of €500,00 each will be given to the best contributions by talented young researchers (Ph.D. students or young researchers within their 6 year of Postdoc).
During the workshop, there will be the opportunity to visit the Virgo interferometer at the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) in Cascina, near Pisa.
The 11th edition of the SciNeGHE!
Thank you for attending this year's conference. We are hoping to seeing you during the 12th SciNeGHE edition in La Palma, Canary Islands, in 2018!
