1. X-ray Grating Spectroscopy Workshop: ABSTRACT DEADLINE 


Item 1.  X-ray Grating Spectroscopy Workshop:  ABSTRACT DEADLINE
The Registration/Abstract deadline for contributed talks are due this
	*** WEDNESDAY MAY 2, 2007 ***
	midnight, Boston time
for X-ray Grating Spectroscopy, a science workshop 
sponsored by the Chandra X-ray Center.  

The workshop will be held 
              July 11-13, 2007 
          in Cambridge, Massachusetts 
          at the Sheraton Commander Hotel

The Workshop webpage 
provides details, including invited speakers, accommodation information,
and a link for Registration/Abstract Submission.

A final registration/submission deadline (for poster presentations only)  is
          Wednesday May 30, 2007
Please note that this is during the AAS meeting.

                WORKSHOP GOALS
  * review progress afforded by X-ray grating spectroscopy of
   extragalactic and galactic sources 
  * compare/contrast physical conditions, estimates of location,
   geometry and kinematics of X-ray emitters/absorbers,
   encompassing collisionally- and photo-excited gas across
   different source types 
  * review and compare available atomic data and codes 
  * provide a forum for discussion of:
      -controversial or unexpected new results 
      -potential new strategies for Chandra/XMM grating observations 

                 SCOPE OF THE MEETING
  * New high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy results from the latest
    observations of extragalactic and galactic sources  
  * Deep IGM studies
  * Related medium-resolution X-ray spectroscopy results from
    current satellites  
  * Theoretical interpretations and modeling issues
  * Spectroscopic studies in conjunction with other wavebands 
  * The future of X-ray spectroscopy 

  * Results and discussions based primarily on X-ray imaging or
    timing results
