High Energy X-ray Probe Splinter Session at HEAD 2023

We invite the high-energy community to a Splinter Session dedicated to the High Energy X-ray Probe (HEX-P) mission concept, taking place during the HEAD 20 Meeting in Kona, HI. The talk session is in the Queen’s Ballroom on Sunday 26 March 2023 at 10:30a Hawaii Time (1:30p Pacific | 4:30p Eastern).

There will be a series of talks describing the overall mission design and some of the most relevant science goals. In addition, a set of posters will be presented expanding on these topics. Talks include

  • HEX-P: Mission Overview – Kristin Madsen
  • Accretion Power I: Black Hole Spins, Truncated Disks, Neutron Stars and ULXs – Javier Garcia
  • Accretion Power II: Ejection Physics, the X-ray Corona, and Spectral-Timing – Dan Wilkins
  • Black Hole Growth I: A complete census of AGN across cosmic time – Francesca Civano
  • Black Hole Growth II: A complete census of AGN in our cosmic backyard – Peter Boorman
  • Resolved Populations: the Broadband X-ray View of Normal Galaxies – Kristen Garofali
  • Galactic Science – Ben Coughenour
  • Time-Domain and Multi-Messenger Astronomy – Murray Brightman

This session is open to the public and can be accessed remotely via Zoom.
