The Galactic Center Black Hole Laboratory

Event starts: 
Tue, 19/11/2013
Event ends: 
Fri, 22/11/2013

The conference is ideally placed in time and location.

November certainly closes the 2013 observing session during which the compact dusty S-cluster object (DSO - often also called gas cloud G2) will probably have passed massive Black Hole associated with Sagittarius A* (SgrA*) at the center of the Milky Way.

This event has spawned great activities in observing the Galactic Center covering the entire electromagnetic spectrum from radio, via infrared to X-ray wavelengths using telescopes across the world. Hence, in Granada we look forward to conclude the presumably fruitful research session on SgrA*.

While the conference mainly aims at a first attempt to summarize this year's observational results, matters need to be put into perspective. The nucleus of our Galaxy has an extremely low luminosity. Although it also demonstrates that violent activities may take place at times. Hence, a comparison between the center of the Milky Way and the nuclei of galaxies hosting Low Luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei appears to be imperative.
