this workshop we propose to have a closer look at the acceleration
processes of relativistic particles in astrophysics and on the high
energy emission processes at work in AGN.
The workshop will be held on the 25th
and 26th of January 2010
in the Château
Meudon site of the Observatoire
- On the first day
the focus will be on acceleration
at very high energies and their application to
AGN physics (acceleration in jets, black hole magnetosphere etc.).
- The following day
will be dedicated to a discussion of high
energy emission models for AGN
, with a focus on hadronic
and the connection between VHE gamma-rays, high energy neutrinos and
UHE cosmic rays.
The program and presentations
can be found here
The list of participants
is given here
to the Meudon site of the Observatoire
and a map of
the site can be found here
(The easiest way to get to the site is to take a local train from Gare Montparnasse
in Paris and to get off at
Gare de Bellevue
- one stop after the Gare de Meudon
From here one has to walk up to the Observatory following the wide Avenue du Château
Please let us know if you need help with accomodation
There is also a possibility for interested participants to extend their
stay for part or all of the week from the 25th to the 29th of
January to work together in the offices of the Château
by the CIAS
which are available for the whole week.
The meeting is organised as a joint workshop between the Action Incitative Accélération
(Observatoire de Paris) and the working
(supported by the GdR-PCHE).
