Overview

We are pleased to announce an international workshop on high energy astrophysics. The main topics of the workshop are listed below, although the workshop is not restricted to those. We aim to cover a wide field of astrophysical research.
1. Relativistic jets formation and collimation: status of theory and numerical simulations
2. Nucleosynthesis and electromagnetic counterparts of neutron-star mergers
3. High energy astrophysical flares (gamma-ray bursts, AGNs) and their possible neutrino counterparts
4. Astrophysical shocks and ultra-high energy cosmic-rays: a long standing puzzle

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts on various topics of high energy astrophysics from Japan and Israel for active discussions and to initiate possible collaborations among the participants. The workshop will be held at RIKEN Wako campus (first week, July 18th and 19th) and RIKEN Kobe campus (second week, July 22nd and 23rd).

Please enjoy your visit at RIKEN, Japan. We are looking forward to seeing you in July!

On behalf of Organizers, Hirotaka Ito (Chair), Noemie Globus (Co-Chair), Shigehiro Nagataki
