In 2012, we are celebrating the 50th birthday of X-ray astronomy. This year
finds the XMM and Chandra missions quite mature after 12 years in orbit.
These have produced a wealth of exciting results ranging from accretion
physics to cosmology. In 2012 the first results from the long awaited
Nustar mission will be presented, while the final preparations for the
launch of the SRG/eROSITA mission are taking place.
We are organising a conference in Mykonos, Greece, in order to celebrate
this occasion. The topics of this conference cover the full range of X-ray
Astronomy from X-ray surveys, AGN and clusters to galaxies as well as
accreting objects in our Galaxy. Although our aim is to cover a broad range of
topics, we will attempt to make sure that the maximum synergy between the
sessions is achieved.
