Conferences I visited and my contributions

2013, 04.-16. November (Annapolis, MD, USA): Putting Accretion Theory to the Test ⟨⟨

The Joint Space Science Institute at the University of Maryland and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center is hosting a conference on "Putting Accretion Theory to the Test" on November 4-6, 2013, in historic Annapolis, Maryland. The meeting will bring together both theorists and observers in order to discuss the physics of accretion disks in the full range of astrophysical settings. Goals of this meeting are (1) Summarize the current state-of-the-art in observations of both steady and transient accretion phenomena as well as accretion disk theory and simulations, (2) Compare and contrast black hole and neutron star disks with white dwarf and protostellar disks in order to elucidate the role of relativistic physics, (3) Identify key observational and theoretical challenges for future work. The format of the meeting will encourage discussion and interaction. (from the homepage.)
