                                                        12-16 May 2003

                             Deadline for registration: 31 March, 2003

With the launch of Chandra and XMM-Newton, X-ray astronomy is becoming
increasingly important for research into many topics in astrophysics.
However, many astronomers have never analyzed X-ray data and do not
have a clear idea of the features and challenges involved.

To enable young astronomers to get a good command of what is fast
becoming an important sub-topic in astronomy, we are organizing a
X-ray school intended for students and recent postdocs who want to
understand the intricacies of X-ray astronomy.  

The emphasis will be on the foundations of X-ray astronomy rather than
on any particular software tools.  

The total enrollment to the school will be limited to 45 people (first
come, first served) so register early.  The deadline for registration
is March 31, 2003.  There is a registration fee of $250.00 (lodging
on-site is not included but will be less than $100 for the complete
duration of the school).

If you are interested in attending this X-ray Astronomy school, 
please see our registration page at:

The school is organized jointly by:  Universities Space Research 
Association,  NASA and the Chandra X-ray Observatory Center.
