First Announcement: ROSSI 2000 Meeting


First Announcement:

   ROSSI 2000: Astrophysics with the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer
   Greenbelt, Maryland, USA
   March 22-24, 2000


As the preeminent large-area X-ray timing mission to date, NASA's
Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) has proven a powerful and highly
flexible tool for studying the variability of the X-ray sky over a wide
range of time scales and X-ray energies. In order to bring together a
diverse mix of researchers working with RXTE data, we are pleased to
announce "ROSSI 2000", a three day meeting to be held Wednesday
through Friday, March 22-24, 2000, at the NASA Goddard Space Flight
Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA.  The meeting will focus on the
wealth of rich new data which continues to be collected from the
mission, and it will seek to bring together observers and theorists
studying both Galactic and extragalactic sources in order to explore
the connections between these areas in a broad astrophysical context. 

Prospective attendees are encouraged to reply to 
rossi2000@lheamail.gsfc.nasa.gov with their name, institution and a
preliminary paper or abstract title. A second announcement with further 
details will be released by late October.
