Aspen Summer Workshop
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together observers and theorists working in the area of GeV and TeV Galactic sources, an area that has attracted much interest following the launch of the Fermi and AGILE space missions and new results from ground-based gamma-ray telescopes. The focus will be on understanding the physics of the newly discovered properties of high-energy sources, including pulsars, pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants, and accreting compact objects. We hope to explore Galactic sources with this new energy window in astrophysics and to synthesize the different but complementary GeV and TeV views , to form a more complete physical picture of these objects . An additionally important topic is how to establish signals of new physics in the galaxy, disentangling the high energy astrophysical processes that must first be understood.
The workshop is being held at the Aspen Center for Physics.
