BEXRB2020 POSTPONED TO 2021

Due to the general worldwide alarm situation because of the covid-19, and taking into account that recovering normal activities will take long and at different paces in different countries, the BeXRB2020 SOC has decided to postpone the meeting to 2021. We apologize for the inconveniences caused by this decision.

One important aspect of BeXRB meetings, which is in the heart of the event from the very beginning, is to give space to discussions and promote networking and collaborations. Therefore it is important to meet in person, even if we have to wait one more year to do so.

We would like to query you about a rough approximation on optimal dates. According to the most preferred quarter and other possible events already planned by then, new dates will be selected.

Please, feel the form below:

Thanks a lot for your feedback.
Spread the news to all those you think might be interested :)

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

We are pleased to announce the Be/X-ray binary 2020 workshop to be held in Valencia (Spain) on 22-24 July 2020.

Encouraged by the great success of the previous editions, BeXRB2020 aims at a comprehensive coverage of the theoretical and observational aspects related to Be/X-ray binaries and similar objects.

The key topics of the meeting will be:

  • Phenomenology of BeXRB transient outbursts in the X-ray domain
  • Timing studies of Be/X-ray binaries
  • Transfer of mass: from decretion to accretion, observation and modelling
  • Multi-wavelength observations and their implications
  • Population studies: Be/X-ray binaries with WD and BH,  BeXRB population in external galaxies, birth places,...
  • The high-energy gamma-ray connection.
  • Prospects in the light of current and future space missions and multimessenger astrophysics

We will bring together scientists from different communities who have approached these topics from different fields of research, with the goal of reaching a clearer and deeper understanding of the physical processes involved.
