7th INTEGRAL Workshop

Integral08 - (other integral conferences)
8 - 11 September 2008
Copenhagen, Denmark

The workshop is part of a biannual sequence of workshops for the presentation and discussion of high energy astrophysical results of observations with the INTEGRAL satellite as well as from other space missions and ground based observatories.

The theme of this workshop is the physics and characteristics of compact object such as white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. The phenomena covered are gamma-ray bursts, X-ray bursts, micro-quasar activity, transients of any kind, pulsars, and surveys for the source classification.

In addition there is a number of invited highlight talks that give overviews of other high energy astrophysics fields. For the topics not directly covered by the main theme there are poster sessions that include the nuclear line emission, diffuse emission, and instrument descriptions. The last session is on future gamma-ray missions.
