High Energy Astrophysics VIRGO.UA Workshop is organized jointly by the INTEGRAL Science Data Centre (Geneva, Switzerland), Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics (Kiev, Ukraine), Astronomical Observatory of Kiev University, and Physics Department of Kiev University in the framework of our common project "Virtual Roentgen and Gamma Observatory - VIRGO.UA" (http://virgoua.org/) which is aimed at providing access to the high energy astrophysics data and analysis software to astronomers and astronomy students from Ukraine as well as for the scientists from neighbouring countries. High Energy Astrophysics VIRGO.UA Workshop has grown from Kiev High Energy Astrophysics Semester that was held previous years starting from 2006.

The lectures included in the programme will cover several basic topics of the high energy astrophysics.

  • X-ray, GeV and TeV Astronomy
  • Active Galactic Nuclei
  • Supernova Remnants
  • X-ray and Gamma-ray binary systems
  • Dark Matter signatures in X and Gamma-rays

The topics will be presented by the top level European scientists. Amongst the invited speakers are:

T. Courvoisier (ISDC, Geneva, Switzerland)
A. Neronov (ISDC, Geneva, Switzerland)
A. Boyarsky (ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland)

Active participants of the VIRGO.UA will also give talks presenting their scientific results obtained in the course of the VIRGO.UA project. Scientists from Ukraine and other countries are welcome to participate in the High Energy Astrophysics VIRGO Workshop. If you would like to give a talk, please, fill in the abstract field in the REGISTRATION FORM.

The official language is English. Some assistance with English - Ukrainian/Russian translation could be provided for junior students not fluent in English.
