- EPIC-pn Burst Mode energy scale correction

- Conference Announcement: "Exploring the Hot and Energetic Universe"

EPIC-pn Burst Mode energy scale correction

A  pair of  CCF constituents  has been  released which  affect the PN
energy scale for Burst Mode:

EPN_REJECT_0008.CCF now includes a  non-null correction for the source
X-ray loading as derived from the offset map.

The    accompanying   constituent   EPN_CTI_0046.CCF    contains new
rate-dependent  CTI correction  parameters for  Burst Mode  which have
been  recalibrated so  as  to  be consistent  with  the X-ray loading

The  SAS  will apply  these  changes  through  the standard parameter
settings of "epproc" or "epchain" for Burst Mode data reduction, see


Conference Announcement:
"Exploring the Hot and Energetic Universe"

The Conference

             Exploring the Hot and Energetic Universe:
The first scientific conference dedicated to the Athena X-ray observatory

will take place from 8th to 10th September 2015 at ESAC, Madrid, Spain.

The purpose  of this conference is  to gather together  all members of
the astronomical  community who have  an interest in Athena.  The main
focus  of the meeting  will be  to discuss  the key  science questions
which will be  addressed by the mission. A  significant portion of the
programme will be devoted to  presenting the status of the project and
discussing  the  synergies with  other  future large multi-wavelength
facilities and missions.
