Notice to the participants

Under the pressure of several participants (mostly young colleagues) on SOC,

we have decided to publish the proceedings of the Frascati Workshop 2015

in electronic form with the Proceedings of Science (PoS-SISSA).

The papers will be published in PoS-SISSA after a referee’s process,

and they will be freely available at once in the NASA-ADS.
In contrast with the old announcement in which we established to avoid

the publication of the proceedings, with the present announcement we

hope to satisfy most of participants.





 This is the eleventh edition of the series of Frascati Workshops on "Multifrequency Behaviour of High Energy Cosmic Sources" which is undoubtedly a largely accepted biennial meeting in which an updated experimental and theoretical panorama will be depicted. 

This edition comes at the 31st anniversary of the first historical "multifrequency" workshop about "Multifrequency Behaviour of Galactic Accreting Sources", held in Vulcano in September 1984.

 This surely renders the Frascati Workshop Series the oldest among the many devoted to "Multifrequency Studies of Cosmic Sources".

The study of the physics governing the cosmic sources will be the main goal of the workshop.

A session devoted to the ongoing and next generation ground- and space-based experiments will give the actual prospects for the first decades of this millennium.


The following items will be reviewed:

  • Cosmology: Cosmic Background, Clusters of Galaxies
  • Extragalactic Sources: Active Galaxies, Normal Galaxies
  • Gamma-Rays Burst: Experiments versus Theories
  • Galactic Sources: Pre-Main-Sequence and Main-Sequence Stars, Cataclysmic Variables and Novae, Supernovae and SNRs, X-Ray Binary Systems, Pulsars, Black Holes, Gamma-Ray Sources,Nucleosynthesis.
  • The Astrophysics with the Ongoing and Future Experiments: Space-Based Experiments,Ground-Based Experiments.



The participation in the workshop is by invitation only. 

All participants are kindly invited to attend the whole workshop.


The workshop will include several 30-min talks to introduce the current problems,

and typically 20-min talks giving new experimental and theoretical results.

A series of 15-min talks will be devoted to ongoing and next generation experiments.

However, to keep alive the workshop it was decided that all presentations should be compulsorily given to the LOC, so that they can be inserted into the web page of the workshop.


These presentations will form the basis for writing two or three review articles by a coordinator, assisted by the director of the workshop. These review articles - a sort of extended concluding remarks - will be signed by the two curators as first authors. All others will appear in alphabetical order.


These review articles will be published in an international journal: i.e. Astronomy Reports.
