Dear Colleagues,

Attached you will find the reminder for the conference we plan to be held
in Rome to mark the 10 year anniversary of the Swift launch. Let me take
this opportunity to share with you the delightful news that Swift was
ranked #1 by the 2014 NASA Senior Review! The report can be found at the
link:

science1.nasa.gov/media/medialibrary/201...niorReview_Panel.pdf

Congratulations to the Swift team for the outstanding science that made it
possible. This will give us 2 more years of definite full funding for the
mission, plus a planning full budget for 2017 and 2018.

May the bursts, explosions, flashes, eruptions, mergers, glitches, flares,
ejections, burps, breakouts, precursors and collisions continue!

Best Regards,
Neil Gehrels

(Apologies if you receive this message more than once)

The meeting "Swift: 10 years of discovery” will be held on December 2-5,
2014 in Rome, Italy, at the Sapienza University, Faculty of Arts and
Humanities. This meeting will celebrate 10 years of Swift successes and
will cover recent advances, both from the observational and theoretical
sides on our knowledge of the high-energy transients Universe.

When Swift was launched on November 20, 2004, its prime objective was to
chase Gamma-Ray Bursts. However, its multi-wavelength and fast scheduling
capacities make it the most versatile mission ever flown. Beside GRBs, It
has been used for studying an impressive variety of targets such as AGNs,
supernovae, novae, variable stars, unidentified gamma-ray sources etc.
Swift has observed sources covering a wide range of redshifts, out to the
most distant transient objects in the Universe. The rich variety of source
classes scrutinized by Swift will be addressed in this meeting with
dedicated sessions. The current knowledge on GRB, as well as other
galactic and extragalactic transient sources will be thoroughly discussed,
reviewing our current view and providing new perspective for the future,
both from theoretical and observational point of view.

Please mark your calendar to save the date! Information on symposium
registration, program schedule and hotel reservations will be available in
the coming weeks on the meeting web page at:

www.brera.inaf.it/Swift10/

We will announce the opening of the online registration in early June.
