CHANDRA ELECTRONIC ANNOUNCEMENT NUMBER 35 One announcement : 1. "Extragalactic Surveys" Workshop ---------------------------------------------------------------- Item 1. "Extragalactic Surveys" Workshop ========================================= Final registration for the Extragalactic Surveys Workshop sponsored by the Chandra X-ray Center is due by the DEADLINE WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 27 The Workshop will be held November 6-8, 2006 in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the Harvard Faculty Club. The Workshop webpage http://cxc.harvard.edu/xsurveys06/ provides information and links for Registration/Abstract Submission. GOALS OF THE MEETING - to identify the most pressing science questions that arise from, or can be answered by extragalactic X-ray surveys - to debate the most profitable and efficient strategies to answer those questions with today's facilities and tools - to identify the most pressing priorities for the future - to communicate and disseminate the results of ongoing X-ray surveys, their multiwavelength followup, analysis and modelling - to provide a forum for discussion and debate between those conducting X-ray surveys and the broader astronomical community SCOPE OF THE MEETING INCLUDE - extragalactic X-ray sources - galaxies, AGN, galaxy clusters - science from current X-ray observatories - serendipitous surveys deep, wide, contiguous, archival (or if pointed samples, N>30) - spatial correlation studies, large and small scale structure - number counts, CXRB, population synthesis Workshop emphasizes X-ray-selected objects, but not exclusively. (e.g., stacked X-ray study of EROs). EXCLUDE 'surveys' of sources in nearby galaxies e.g., M31, Milky Way small (N<30) pointed samples of previously known objects deep IGM absorption ('WHIM') studies This Electronic Bulletin is used for the dissemination of important announcements and information about the Chandra X-Ray Observatory to members of the community.
