Particles and Radiation from Cosmic Accelerators
March 2 - 4, 2005

Chiba University, Chiba, JAPAN

Objective of the meeting: High energy astrophysical phenomena such as gamma-ray bursts, supernovae, and relativistic jets in active galactic nuclei (AGNs) can be the sources of high energy cosmic rays and photons. Recent progress in numerical magnetohydrodynamics and particle simulations has enabled us to study the formation of relativistic outflows and acceleration of high energy particles by direct numerical simulations. Moreover, the radio, X-ray, and gamma-ray observations are identifying the location of particle acceleration.
This mini-workshop brings together scientists who are studying acceleration of cosmic plasmas and particles through observational, theoretical and/or numerical methods. In this workshop, we hope to push forward the collaboration between the communities of high energy particle astrophysics, high energy astrophysics and plasma astrophysics.
Organizers:Ryoji Matsumoto (Chair), Shigeru Yoshida (Co-chair), Tomoyuki Hanawa, Tomoyoshi Ito, Hideyuki Kawai, and Shigeki Miyaji [Chiba University]
