DEADLINES **Friday, May 28, 2010** Final deadline for general registration and poster abstract submission **Monday, June 21, 2010** Deadline for room reservations at the DoubleTree Guest Suites at special meeting rates ($174/single). POSTER HAIKU: You will also have the opportunity to present a short advertisement for your poster, so that colleagues can see a your face and a representative plot, and hear the scientific punchline. Allotted time will be 1-2min depending on how many presenters sign up. MEETING ABSTRACT: Accretion Processes in X-rays: from White Dwarfs to Quasars Current X-ray observatories have revolutionized the study of accretion in diverse astrophysical settings. Chandra and XMM-Newton gratings have enabled the detection of small velocity shifts and weak but vitally important lines, and the central engine in nearby accreting sources has been revealed in new detail. It is now possible to detect extremely faint sources, enhancing our understanding of accretion power throughout the universe and low-level accretion within the Milky Way. Chandra has also revealed unexpected parallels between accretion onto pre-main sequence stars, white dwarfs, neutron stars, stellar-mass and super-massive black holes. The goals of this meeting are: (1) to bring together a broad scientific community interested in probing accretion physics from the X-ray perspective, (2) to leverage the rich accretion phenomenology and diverse theoretical approaches toward the understanding of accretion, and (3) to look ahead to the next ten years with Chandra, and future X-ray missions as well. INVITED TALKS: *Laura Brenneman* - "X-ray spectral signatures of accretion onto a supermassive black hole" *George Chartas* - "X-ray signatures of Outflows in Quasars" *Barbara Ercolano* - "X-ray irradiated protoplanetary disks" *John Hawley* - "Simulations of Accretion Flows" *Jeroen Homan* - "An observational overview of state transitions in X-ray binaries" *Chris Mauche* - "Accretion Processes in Magnetic Cataclysmic Variables" *Monika Moscibrodzka* - Simulations of low luminosity accretion flows. *Daniel Proga* - "Simulations of Outflows" *Marina Romanova* - "Accretion onto magnetized stars" *Phil Uttley* - "Variability and the Implications for Accretion" *Peter Wheatley* - "Accretion processes in Non-magnetic CVs" CONTRIBUTED TALKS are listed at http://cxc.harvard.edu/cdo/accr10/program.html
