       Sponsored by: ASCA, AXAF, CGRO, ROSAT, and RXTE projects

             * Incorporating RXTE and  AXAF Workshops *


                       November 4 - 7, 1997

                       Estes Park, Colorado

           "Gateway to the Rocky Mountain National Park"


                   ABSTRACTS DUE AUGUST 1, 1997


The High Energy Astrophysics community has five outstanding missions 
currently in operation (ASCA, CGRO, ROSAT, BeppoSAX and RXTE) and others 
slated for launch in the next few years (AXAF, XMM, Spectrum X, ASTRO-E and 
INTEGRAL).  Excitement is particularly high this year for the recently 
launched RXTE and BeppoSAX missions with their timing capabilities and broad 
energy coverage.  Also, momentum is building for the launch next year of the 
powerful AXAF observatory.  The unprecedented diversity and quality of data 
available from the current missions and expected from the coming missions 
reinforces the clear need to communicate across missions and wavelength 
boundaries.  The AAS High Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD) is holding its 
third Divisional meeting in Fall 1997 to provide a forum for this interchange.  

The meeting will cover observations and theory for all energies above ~100 
eV and for all scientific areas of high energy astrophysics, with links to 
the rest of the spectrum.  The sessions will be science-based, rather than 
mission-based.  Oral sessions will include plenary reviews plus contributed 
talks.  Ample time will be allowed for viewing papers in the poster 
sessions.  Evening discussion sessions may be organized on topics of current 
interest.  Anyone with a topic in mind for a special session, please contact 
Neil Gehrels (gehrels@gsfc.nasa.gov). The meeting will also incorporate 1/2 day 
workshops on data analysis for RXTE and on guest investigator opportunities for
AXAF.  Also, a special session or workshop will be held to discuss future 

The abstract book from the meeting will be published, but there will 
be no proceedings.  The Scientific Organizing Committee is listed below.

                             MEETING DETAILS


	Estes Park is a delightful mountain village at the gateway to 
Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park.   Located about 30 minutes from 
Boulder, the village has been restored over the past several years to 
become one of Colorado’s premier vacation resorts.  It is known for 
its panoramic scenery, outdoor sports and, of course, The Rocky Mountain 
National Park.  Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous paved highway in 
the United States is just a few miles from the center of town and takes 
you to the park in only half an hour.  

The Stanley Hotel is the site of the 1997 meeting. Built in 1909, 
The Stanley is  a completely refurbished historic hotel.  It  offers 
an elegant and relaxed atmosphere that echos the graciousness of a bygone era.
The Hotel will be featured this spring in a television version of 
"The Shining", directed by Stephen King.   The Hotel is within walking 
distance of Estes Park shops and dining.  We expect the weather to be cold 
in November, possibly with snow, so be prepared!  A variety of local tours 
can be arranged by the hotel including rock climbing, mountain biking 
(weather permitting), cross-country skiing, fly fishing, and hiking.   
The Stanley Hotel has only 120 rooms.  Additional rooms have been reserved 
at the Holiday Inn, Estes Park.  


Registration details will be emailed shortly to those on the head97
mailing list.
