CHANDRA ELECTRONIC ANNOUNCEMENT NUMBER 41 One announcement : 1. X-ray Grating Spectroscopy Workshop ---------------------------------------------------------------- Item 1. X-ray Grating Spectroscopy Workshop ============================================= The final abstract submission/registration deadline is 30 MAY 2007 for X-ray Grating Spectroscopy, a science workshop sponsored by the Chandra X-ray Center. Please note that this is DURING THE AAS meeting, so please make sure to submit earlier if you will be in Hawaii. The workshop will be held July 11-13, 2007 in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the Sheraton Commander Hotel The Workshop webpage http://cxc.harvard.edu/xgratings07 provides details, including a preliminary program, invited speakers, accommodation information, and a link for Registration/Abstract Submission. 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 INCLUDE * 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 EXCLUDE * Results and discussions based primarily on X-ray imaging or timing results This Electronic Bulletin is used for the dissemination of important announcements and information about the Chandra X-Ray Observatory to members of the community.
