Item 1.  The Suzaku Conference:  "The Extreme Universe in the Suzaku Era"

                      FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
               December 4-8, 2006, Kyoto, JAPAN

Dear all,

This is the first Announcement of the Suzaku Conference
"The Extreme Universe in the Suzaku Era",
which will be held on December 4-8 in 2006, the millennium of SN1006.

The conference site, Kyoto is the old capital city of Japan, with
full of beautiful sights
and many World's Cultural Heritage

Furthermore, the early December is the last chance to enjoy beautiful
red and yellow leaves in Kyoto. Not only to enjoy the Suzaku-science
but also the Oriental History, Culture and Nature, please assign the
date (December 4-8 in 2006) for your "Kyoto trip".

Please notify this event to all of your colleagues and neighbor, and
kindly upload this conference information on any of the relevant
Web(s) and/or Board(s).

The outline of the Conference is given below and also in our
Conference Web;

Any inquiries, comments advice should be to the Conference LOC;

On behalf of the SOC and LOC
Katsuji Koyama (SOC chair) and Takeshi Tsuru (LOC chair)

**** The Conference Outline

Title: The Extreme Universe in the Suzaku Era

Date and Place:
- December 4-8, 2006, Kyoto Japan -


The 5-th Japanese satellite Suzaku (ASTRO-E2), in collaboration with
NASA, was successfully launched on 10-th July, 2005. The excellent
performance of the XIS and HXD combined with a dedicated strategy for
Suzaku observations will lead us to much outstanding science even
after the loss of XRS. Many of the first exciting results should be
ready within one year. Accordingly, an international Suzaku conference
should be held in the next year, 2006, to exchange the new results and
new ideas, to deepen our understanding, and to demonstrate the promise
and capabilities of Suzaku to the entire world. The conference title
is "The Extreme Universe in the Suzaku Era", where "the Extreme
Universe" will be deeply probed with Thermal and Non-Thermal X-rays
observed with XIS and HXD. Next year is the millennium of SN1006.
SN1006 is a symbolic object in which Thermal and Non-Thermal X-rays
jointly play a key roles on the "Extreme Universe. The famous
Japanese poet, Teika Fujiwara wrote a short note of the Supernova
event in 1006 on his diary, "Meigetsu-ki" (the bright moon). It is
reasonable to have the millennium meeting in Kyoto, the hometown of
Teika, with the title of "The Extreme Universe".

Obviously, the topics is not limited to SN1006 but should be part of
the general theme: "The Extreme Universe Probed with Thermal and
Non-Thermal Radiation". These may or may not yet be carefully studied
with Suzaku, but the topics should all be recent high energy results
from currently active satellites, Suzaku, Chandra, XMM, Integral,
Swift and Others.
