MEETING ABSTRACT:

   Structure in Clusters and Groups of Galaxies in the Chandra Era

The 2011 Chandra Science Workshop focuses on structure within the hot
intracluster media (ICM) of resolved clusters and groups of
galaxies. This conference will celebrate the interface of observable
phenomena such as shocks, cold fronts, abundance variations, bubbles,
and jets with theory and interpretations related to cluster mergers,
sloshing, and AGN feedback, with an emphasis on joining Chandra
results with those from other missions and wavelengths.
