Gamma-Ray Loud Binaries

7 – 10 October 2024
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Ireland

We are delighted to announce that a CDY Workshop on Gamma-Ray Loud Binaries will be hosted by Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) this autumn!

The DIAS-CDY workshop on “Gamma-ray Loud Binaries” scheduled from 7-10 October, 2024, will focus on the recent advances made in the rapidly expanding class of  binary systems that reveal themselves as extreme gamma-ray emitters. The scientific topics will cover the latest gamma-ray observations, from GeV to PeV energies of gamma-ray loud binaries, binary pulsars, microquasars, Novae and colliding wind binaries. The 4 day programme of invited and contributed talks will discuss the multi-wavelength characteristics of these sources, and their theoretical and phenomenological interpretation.  As part of the meeting, the programme will include an afternoon celebrating the contributions of Prof. Felix Aharonian to high-energy astrophysics and to DIAS since his appointment in 2006.
