12th XMM-Newton SAS Workshop
The XMM-Newton SOC announces the 12th SAS Workshop, which will be held
at the European Space Astronomy Centre of ESA, Madrid, Spain, between
the 11th and the 15th of June 2012.
SAS Workshops aim at providing XMM users with a basic introduction to
the procedures and techniques to successfully reduce and analyse
XMM-Newton data. The 5-day workshop is organised around 5 half-days of
presentations and 5 half-days of practical training sessions. The
sessions cover all aspects of data reduction and data analysis for all
the X-ray cameras and the Optical Monitor on-board XMM-Newton.
Interested persons should send an email through the XMM-Newton
not later than the 30th of April 2012.
Please specify in the subject line: "Interest in participating in the
12th XMM-Newton SAS Workshop"
and provide the following information:
Main Research Field :

Workshop Announcement: Tidal Disruption events and AGN outbursts
The ESA Faculty at ESAC is pleased to announce the Workshop
Tidal Disruption events and AGN outbursts
25th-27th June 2012
European Space Astronomy Centre, Madrid, Spain
Over the next few years, sensitive, large-area, surveys will come
on-line and likely detect extragalactic flares in large numbers. The
recent detection of a high luminosity tidal disruption event
candidate, with the SWIFT satellite, has given fresh impetus to the
field and now is an opportune moment for a workshop dedicated to these
The aim of the workshop is to bring together theorists and observers
for a review of previous and current observations and state-of-the-art
modelling, and help to develop a strategy for the identification and
follow-up of future events.
Deadline for registration and abstract submission is 15th April 2012.

ASTRO-H Session at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science
The ASTRO-H mission will be launched in 2014 by the Japan Aerospace
eXploration Agency (JAXA). It will carry several revolutionary
instruments, like a focusing-optics hard X-ray imager and the first
calorimeter on an X-ray satellite. ASTRO-H will be an observatory
mission, with some fraction of the time available to European
A one-day Special Session will be devoted to ASTRO-H on 3rd July 2012
at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS) in Rome,
The goal of this session is to promote the mission in the European
community and to start preparing European astronomers for the
successful use of ASTRO-H.
Abstracts for contributed talks and posters can be submitted until
30th March 2012 on the following web page:
