Users Group meeting #14: Invitation from UG to contact them for comments

The XMM-Newton Users Group (UG) will hold its yearly meeting next 16th
and  17th May at  ESAC.  As  always, we  would like  to invite  you to
contact any  of the members  of the UG  and/or myself if you  have any
sort of  feedback, suggestion or topic  that you would like  the UG to
discuss in relation to the XMM-Newton operations.

The amount of feedback that  we have been receiving recently is rather
modest. Although  this might be attributable  to XMM-Newton operations
having   reached   some   maturity,   there   is   always   room   for
improvement.  Please note that  we rely  on your  views to  advise the
project on how to make XMM-Newton a better X-ray observatory.

Thanks for your help,

Xavier Barcons, Chair, XMM-Newton Users Group

Note the new UG membership:

X. Barcons (chair), H. Boehringer, A. Decourchelle, C. Done, M. Guedel,
M. Mendez, R. Mushotzky, C. Sarazin, B. Stelzer and M. Salvati
(OTAC Chair).

A dedicated Web page of the Users Group is available at:


This Web  page provides, among  other information, the  contact points
for  all interested  astronomers  to  send their  comments  to the  UG
