Wellcome to the BeXRB 2014 web site.

 With the aim of reaching an assessment on the status of the research in the field of the Be X-Ray Binary systems (BeXRB), a meeting was held in Valencia (Spain) on 11th-14th July 2011 (BeXRB 2011). We gathered experts in the field to discuss about our actual knowledge of these systems, and to try to seek new insights from new points of view in data and modeling in order to explore directions for future research. The conference was a success in promoting dialogue and discussions among participants. We have repeated  the experience again in Valencia, on 7th-10th July 2014.

List of topics reviewed:

  • Phenomenology of BeXRB transient outbursts in the X-ray domain (normal vs giant, pre-flares, complex shaped outbursts, pulse profiles ...)
  • Observations in other wavebands and their implications
  • BeXRBs in external galaxies compared to the Milky Way population
  • The high-energy gamma-ray connection (LS I +61 303, HESS J0632+057 & PSR B1259-63)
  • Transient outbursts as laboratories of accretion physics
  • Be stars, Be disks & models in the context of explaining the BeXRB phenomenon
