COST ACTION MP0905 - BLACK HOLES IN A VIOLENT UNIVERSE
"Black Holes in Orbit"
4th WORKING GROUPS & 3rd MC MEETING 2 - 4 November 2011 Manchester / U.K.
R. Ferdman A. Rushton S. Tuhkanen S. Britzen U. Wyputta
Our COST Action has the main goal to further the understanding of the general phenomenon of Black Holes by bringing together Black Hole scientists from all mass-ranges and all over Europe. Invited experts will review the research with regards to Black Holes in Orbit - e.g., supermassive binary black holes, double pulsars. The WGs will have time to discuss recent progress in their fields.
The structure of the meeting comprises a Plenary Session with up to four invited talks and subsequent time for discussions and individual Working Group sessions. The meeting is rather short (2.5 days) but offers room for discussions with Black Hole scientists and young researchers and is meant to serve as a kind of Think Tank to develop new ideas, projects and collaborations.
The meeting will take place at the University of Manchester. A visit of the Jodrell Bank Observatory - the site of the Lovell telescope and the new headquarters for the Square Kilometre Array - is planned as well.
