[XTEnews]: RXTE special session at the 219th AAS meeting


RXTE Special Session at the January 2012 meeting of the American
Astronomical Society (AAS).

The RXTE team is organizing a special session for the 219th meeting of
the American Astronomical Society (AAS) to be held in Austin, TX from
January 8-12, 2012.  This will be an opportunity to highlight the many
scientific contributions made possible with RXTE observations,
celebrate the longevity and success of the mission, and review the
important scientific questions still to be answered by future missions
with an increase in X-ray timing capability.  In a 90 minute session
we will have five invited talks exploring the legacy of RXTE
discoveries, examining research topics of current and ongoing
interest, and highlighting the discovery space for future missions.
We invite all RXTE users and friends to join us for this special
occasion, as well as to contribute relevant scientific abstracts to an
associated poster session.  We will post additional details about the
session as they are finalized. Further information about the 219th AAS
meeting, including abstract and registration deadlines, can be found
at the AAS website (http://aas.org/).  We look forward to seeing many
of you in Austin to celebrate RXTE.
