Mini-Symposium "X-ray Astronomy from the Local Bubble to AGN"
Date and Place:
Motivation and Scientific Topics:
Part 1: X-rays of Galactic origin
The first part of the Mini-Symposium "X-ray Astronomy from the
Local Bubble to AGN" is dedicated to observations and theory of diffuse
soft X-rays of mainly Galactic origin. Special emphasis is given to new
observational results obtained with the observatories XMM-Newton, Chandra
as well as ROSAT and Beppo-Sax.
On the theoretical side we welcome new ideas and models to describe
and interpret these new high spectral resolution data.
One third of the mini symposium will be dedicated to
"The high energy view of Local Group and other Nearby Galaxies"
with emphasis on new results obtained from the two major X-ray observatories
Chandra and XMM-Newton and the ongoing missions Beppo-SAX and RXTE.
The improved imaging and spectral capabilities will enable the
X-ray observations of active galaxies and quasars currently provide the most powerful
way to explore the immediate environments of
supermassive black holes. Our ability to probe these environments underwent a
revolution with the launches of Chandra and
XMM-Newton. The high throughput and excellent spectral cababilities of the new
generation of X-ray observatories allow more precise
investigations at the forefront of active-galaxy/quasar X-ray research and have
already revealed many new and unexpected
