Workshop on High Resolution X-Ray Spectroscopy
----- Forwarded message from Graziella Branduardi <firstname.lastname@example.org> -----
This is the first announcement of a
** HIGH RESOLUTION X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY with XMM-NEWTON and CHANDRA **
** 24th and 25th October 2002 **
Mullard Space Science Laboratory
Holmbury St Mary, Dorking, Surrey, UK
Registration and abstract deadline - 30th June 2002
Some of the most exciting and novel results to emerge from the current
generation of X-ray observatories, namely XMM-Newton and Chandra, are
provided by the high spectral resolution of their dispersive spectrometers.
High resolution spectroscopy in the X-ray band has proven to be an invaluable
diagnostic tool in detailed investigations of the dynamics and physical
structure of X-ray sources, investigations which until recently could only be
carried out on the closest of these sources, the Sun.
Now that XMM-Newton guest observations are routinely carried out and the data
widly distributed to the astronomical community, the time is ripe for gathering
a workshop to review the science results and explore the analysis techniques
associated with grating observations; the aim is to focus on XMM-Newton RGS
investigations and technical issues, without excluding, though, relevant work
from the Chandra mission.
In addition to the invited speakers programme, there will time for a number of
contributed talks (focussing on XMM-Newton and Chandra spectroscopy results).
Space for poster papers will also be available.

Looking forward to meeting you at MSSL in October!
