This is the fourth in a series of the International MAXI Workshops. MAXI (Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image) is an all-sky X-ray monitor on the International Space Station. MAXI was delivered to "Kibo" the Japanese Experiment Module on the ISS by Space Shuttle Endeavour in July 2009, and started observations in August 2009.
Since then, MAXI has been monitoring variable X-ray sources distributed over the entire sky. MAXI has obtained light curves and energy spectra of black hole candidates, binary X-ray pulsars, low-mass X-ray binaries, and AGN. MAXI has also detected short transient events such as gamma-ray bursts and stellar flares. The light curves of more than 200 X-ray sources are now being updated daily in three X-ray bands. The transient alerts are routinely submitted to the community. At this workshop, the results from the 1-year observations with MAXI will be discussed along with the results from other observatories in various wavebands.
