XMM-Newton AO-13 OTAC Results

The list of XMM-Newton proposals accepted by the AO-13 Observing Time
Allocation Committee (OTAC) and the associated proposal abstracts are
available at


The Principal Investigators of  submitted proposals have been informed
by  e-mail about  the results  of  the OTAC  evaluation.  The message
contains the  details about the  second phase proposal  submission for
successful observations, which must  be done via the XMM-Newton Remote
Proposal Submission System (XRPS). The XRPS will be closed on the 31st
of January 2014 at 13:00 UT.

AO-13 observations will start to be routinely performed in May 2014.

Version 8.1 of the XMM-Newton Science Archive released

A new  version of the XMM-Newton  Science Archive (XSA  v8.1) has been
released, including some improvements and a few bug fixes.

Access to the  web interface and to the  documentation is available at
the XSA web page:


Scientists are reminded that the  previous XSA v7.2 java interface and
associated  AIO  client, providing  access  only  to  old versions  of
pipeline products  and 2XMM catalogue,  will be discontinued  in about
2-3 months.  People that have not  migrated yet to using XSA 8 and the
new AIO client are therefore encouraged to do it soon.

Version 3.0 of the Upper Limit Server tool released

Version 3.0  of the upper limit  server (ULS) has  been released. This
release  is  compatible with  version  8.1  of  the XSA  and accesses
XMM-Newton public pointed and slew  data. For slew data, it will serve
upper limits from all currently processed slews, including more recent
ones   which  were   previously  unavailable.   Several enhancements,
including  support for  target  names and  for sexagesimal coordinate
format in source lists, have been added.

The ULS tool, as well as its User Guide, are available at:
