Of interest to members of the IAU Time Domain Working Group:
"15 years INTEGRAL Symposium: Energetic Time Domain Astrophysics"
We wish to invite you to the: "15 years INTEGRAL Symposium: Energetic
Time Domain Astrophysics" that will take place in the week of 15-20
October 2017 in Venice, Italy.
We wish to invite you to the:
The goal of this Symposium is to present and discuss the main results
obtained during the last decade in the field of high-energy
astrophysics, with an emphasis on Time Domain Astrophysics.
The Symposium will be held in honour of Neil Gehrels, INTEGRAL Mission
With deep sorrow we inform you that the “after dinner speech” Prof. G.
F. Bignami had kindly agreed to give to memorialize Neil has been
During the Symposium a young scientist (younger than thirty-five years
old as of July 31, 2017) will be awarded the “Mikhail Revnivtsev Prize”,
a distinction established in honour of the renowned high-energy
The focus of this meeting will be the highly energetic astrophysical
phenomena observed by INTEGRAL, particularly with respect to discussing
the advanced modelling and observational constraints that occur at all
wavelengths, and discussing other cosmic messengers. The SOC aims to
provide a broad perspective on INTEGRAL's findings, and place these
results in the context of other space-based missions, such as Herschel,
Planck, XMM-Newton, Chandra, NuSTAR, Astrosat, MAXI, Swift, Fermi, AGILE
etc., as well as ground-based observatories such as Ligo/Virgo, IceCube,
LOFAR, HESS, Veritas, MAGIC, CTA, etc.
There will be dedicated presentations on correlated multi-wavelength
studies, as well as recent observations of High-energy neutrinos, Fast
Radio Bursts and Gravitational Waves.
The Symposium will provide a comprehensive summary on recent
developments in the following scientific topics:
* X-ray binaries: black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarfs
* Isolated neutron stars: gamma-ray pulsars, magnetars
* Nucleosynthesis: SNe, Novae, SNRs, ISM and γ-ray lines, including
* Massive black holes in AGNs: blazars, and the nucleus of the Milky Way
* Sky surveys, source populations and new class of unidentified sources
* Gamma-Ray Bursts
* New Astronomies counterpart
Five main sessions will focus on:
1. New Astronomies and strategies: GW, HEH, FRB, GRB
2. Outbursting sources: BHC, NS, AGN...
3. Accretion and Ejection
4. Gamma-Ray Spectroscopy
5. Surveys and population studies
In addition to hosting invited speakers (see the Symposium website) to
review each of the topics above, we will offer enough time to
contributed talks and posters related to space observatories, and
multi-wavelength or multi-messenger observations and programs.
Details regarding the location, registration procedure, information
about hotels, etc. will be provided soon on the following webpage:
2017 May 15 - Open registration + abstract submission
2017 September 1 - Abstract deadline & early registration
2017 October 15-20 - Symposium (Sunday evening until Friday afternoon)
2017 October 31 - Proceedings submission deadline
We kindly invite you to mark the Venice INTEGRAL 2017 Symposium in your
agenda for October 15th-20th, and advise that you make
hotel reservations at your earliest convenience.
Looking forward to seeing you in Venice.
