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.
