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 with
little or no experience in X-ray data analysis.
The emphasis will be on the foundations of X-ray astronomy rather than
on any particular software tools.
