|With the launch of Chandra and XMM-Newton,
X-ray astronomy is becoming increasingly important for research into many
topics in astrophysics. However, many astronomers have never analyzed X-ray
data and do not have a clear idea of the features and challenges involved.
To enable young astronomers to get a good command of what is fast becoming an important sub-topic in astronomy, we are organizing a X-ray school intended for graduate students and recent postdocs who want to understand the intricacies of X-ray astronomy.
The emphasis will be on the foundations of X-ray astronomy rather than on any particular software tools.
