XMM-Newton Conference: "The X-ray Universe 2014"
The XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre is organising a major
from Monday 16th to Thursday 19th June 2014
in Dublin, Ireland.
The symposium is the fourth international meeting in the series "The
X-ray Universe". The intention is to gather a general collection of
research in high energy astrophysics. The symposium will provide a
showcase for results, discoveries and expectations from current and
future X-ray missions.
More information, including details on the key dates for registration
and abstract submission is available via the conference web page:
The First Announcement will be sent in November 2013.
XMM-Newton Workshop "The Fast and the Furious":
Presentations and Posters available on-line
The XMM-Newton Science workshop "The Fast and the Furious: Energetic
Phenomena in Isolated Neutron Stars, Pulsar Wind Nebulae and Supernova
Remnants" was held at ESAC from 22nd to 24th May 2013, with more than
80 registered participants. Presentations and posters are available
and stored in the ADS database under
Refereed proceedings are under preparation and will appear next year
as an issue of Astronomical Notes / Astronomische Nachrichten.
ESA Research Fellowships in Space Science at ESAC
Postdoctoral fellowships in the area of Astronomy and Astrophysics
related to the X-ray observatory XMM-Newton are tenable at the
XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre in the European Space Astronomy
Centre (ESAC) located in Villafranca del Castillo, near Madrid, Spain.
The European Space Agency awards several postdoctoral fellowships each
year. The aim of these fellowships is to provide young scientists,
holding a PhD or the equivalent degree, with the means of performing
Space Science research in fields related to the ESA Science and
Robotic Exploration Programmes. The fellowships have a duration of two
Applications are now solicited for fellowships in Space Science to
begin in the fall of 2014. Preference will be given to applications
submitted by candidates within five years of receiving their
PhD. Candidates not holding a PhD yet are encouraged to apply, but
they must provide evidence of receiving their degree before starting
Research opportunities with XMM-Newton science staff include: studies
of the high energy emission of novae, (massive) stars, galaxies, and
AGN using XMM-Newton data. Working at ESAC within the XMM-Newton team
gives the unique opportunity of being in contact with the calibration
scientists, the developers of the analysis software and the User
