Item 2.   Chandra Calibration Workshop 2004


It't that time of year again!

Please join us at the third annual CHANDRA Calibration Workshop.
Members of the CHANDRA Science Center Calibration team will be on hand
to present their latest and greatest efforts to characterize the
performance of Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS), the High
Resolution Camera (HRC), and the Low and High Energy Transmission
Gratings (LETG and HETG).

The workshop is intended to enhance the diffusion of knowledge about
the performance of the instruments, as well as to encourage the entire
community to contribute to the performance models. There will be
poster presentations, round table discussions as well as sessions of
talks that the community is invited to actively participate in.

Registration is free and we would appreciate it if you could register
as soon as possible so that we can include you in our calculations of
the food.  The nominal deadline for abstracts was October 1st, but we
will continue to accept any submissions on a space available basis.

So the details:
    When: The Calibration Workshop will be held on October 25th and
    Where: The meeting will be held at the Sheraton Commander in
    Cambridge just down the street from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center
    for Astrophysics, in close proximity to MIT and downtown Boston.
    More Information: The web page (http://cxc.harvard.edu/ccw) is
    up and waiting for your registrations/submissions. Other
    interesting details (including the proceedings from the last two
    years) can also be found there.

We look forward to seeing you in October!

Hank Donnelly
