General Information

This fifth edition of the VGGRS workshop (see Heidelberg 2010, Barcelona 2013, Heidelberg 2015, Tokyo 2017) will be focused on the study of gamma-ray binaries as well as on the potential of CTA in advancing our understanding of these systems. We intend to gather people actively working in these fields and discuss the present and future challenges that new observations, numerical simulations, and theoretical modelling are posing. The workshop will last for three days, from September 4th to September 6th 2019, with extended discussion sessions at the end of each day.
The format will be similar to the previous meetings: modest size, quite informal, and very much discussion oriented. As in past editions, there will be no proceedings. The talks will be of 20 minutes including questions.
