Recent years have seen an increasing interest of the astronomical community on the topic of super-Eddington accretion on compact objects, which can apply to a variety of systems, such as supermassive black holes, black hole binaries, ULXs, neutron stars. Moreover, the possibility that the Eddington limit may be violated can have important implications for the related topics of black hole growth, galaxy evolution and AGN feedback.
This workshop will be an opportunity to compare recent observations with state-of-the-art theoretical modeling of super-Eddington flows, and to discuss the cosmological implications of this regime of accretion.
The program will be divided into themes, covering around half/one day each. A discussion on the topics of the session will take place at the end of each session, coordinated by an invited moderator.Accretion and ejection physics
The venue will be the Arbatax Park Resort Congress Centre. We strongly encourage participants to book a room in the Resort. Discounted prices are available for the participants. You will receive the discount code during the registration process.
