13th XMM-Newton SAS Workshop

The XMM-Newton SOC announces the 13th SAS Workshop, which will be held
at the  European Space Astronomy  Centre of ESA, near  Madrid (Spain),
between the 10th and the 14th of June 2013.

The  SAS  Workshop provides  an  introduction  to  the procedures  and
techniques  of  the Science  Analysis  System  to  reduce and  analyse
astronomical  X-ray data  from the  XMM-Newton Observatory.  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
Helpdesk at:


not later than the 15th of April 2013.

Communicating your XMM-Newton results

The XMM-Newton SOC has a strong interest in monitoring and potentially
publishing on the Web  your scientific results.  Scientists wishing to
communicate  their  work on  XMM-Newton  data (outstanding  scientific
results, academic theses, images...),  can find some guidelines on how
to do it at the following page:


Conference Announcement: "Science Operations 2013"

The  European  Space  Astronomy  Centre,  in  collaboration  with  the
European  Southern  Observatory,   announces  the  Science  Operations
Conference SciOps2013,  that will  be held at  ESAC from 10th  to 13th
September 2013.

The objective  of SciOps  2013 is to  present and discuss  the various
approaches   to  science   operations  in   spacecraft   missions  and
ground-based facilities for Astronomy and Solar System Science.
