|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.
The total enrollment to the school will be limited to 45 people (first come, first served). The deadline for registration is May 31, 2002. There is a registration fee of $100.00.
