There has been enormous progress in our field since our last face-to-face meeting in Sun Valley in March, 2019: the launch of SRG and the completion of the initial all-sky X-ray surveys from eROSITA and ART-XC, precise constraints on the neutron star equation of state by high precision X-ray timing with NICER and gravitational wave observations with LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA, and the release of the 2020 Decadal, pointing the path to future advances in our understanding of the high-energy Universe.

The 19th Divisional meeting will take place at the William Penn Omni, 13-17 March 2022, in Pittsburgh, PA. The Omni is a beautiful historic (and supposedly haunted) hotel which, since 1916, "played a starring role in the city of Pittsburgh, hosting movie stars, politicians, heads of state and leaders of business".

We look forward to seeing everyone in Pittsburgh!
