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

The Workshop will be held November 6-8, 2006 
in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the Harvard Faculty Club.
The Workshop webpage 
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
   - 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).
   '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
