Abstracts are due Friday, May 13, 2011

We are delighted to announce the 2011 edition of the High Energy
Astrophysics Divisional meeting and we anticipate another excellent
conference with several new and exciting features.  Learn about the
new results from ongoing missions and programs, as well as the latest
results from the Large Hadron Collider.  Special sessions will inform,
discuss, and debate a range of issues from whether dark matter has been
detected to the future of high energy astrophysics.

Newport is a very special place with the best-preserved Colonial
district in the United States, along with the greatest mansions of the
Gilded Age, one of which will host our conference dinner.  The weather
should be ideal for taking advantage of the wonderful beaches and
outdoor activities.

Special Sessions Include

Upcoming X-Ray Missions: NuSTAR, eROSITA, Astro-H, and GEMS
Astrophysics with the Cherenkov Telescope Array
High-Energy Processes in Nearby Galactic Nuclei
X-Ray Polarimetry as a Probe of Extreme Physics
Transient Astronomy in the Advanced LIGO Era: Electromagnetic Counterparts to Gravitational-Wave Signals
Time Series in High Energy Astrophysics: Techniques Applicable to Multi-Dimensional Analysis

In addition to the usual topics, we hope to assemble sessions around
the themes:

Are There Viable Models for SN Ia?
Particle Physics and Astrophysics
Have We Detected Dark Matter?

And the following topics might help to inform you about the near-future:

The Future of High Energy Astrophysics
The Hiring Process: Things Young Scientists Should Know
