New results in X-ray astronomy 2009


General information

Continuing the series of annual one-day workshops on UK X-ray astronomy, this year's meeting will be held at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge on Wednesday 16th September, 2009. The meeting will consist of contributed talks and posters on the subject of New Results in X-Ray Astronomy.

It will be an opportunity to showcase the exciting results continually appearing from current X-ray missions, and look forward to the science which will drive the next generation of X-ray missions. We invite submissions of abstracts for contributed talks and posters relating to the whole range of contemporary X-ray astrophysics, from extragalactic to solar system. In particular this workshop will provide an opportunity for newer members of the UK high energy community to present results, and to meet with members of other groups working in this area. There will be no registration fee.

A programme is now available. Please register in advance your intention to attend the meeting.

We will be heading to the Churchill College dining room for lunch, where a range of inexpensive hot and cold food is available for purchase. We will make directions available on the day for those who need them.

Please send questions about the meeting to Alex Blustin, ajb at
