Item 1.  More than 15 minutes of Fame:  Images for the Chandra 2006 Calendar

The EPO group is looking for beautiful images to include in the 2006
Chandra calendar. If you have an image that you think deserves to be
on view in full color for a whole month, please forward a copy to the
Chandra EPO multi-media coordinator, Kim Kowal Arcand, at 
kkowal@head.cfa.harvard.edu. To process it for the calendar
we will eventually need the Fits file, but any version of the image is
acceptable for review. We know that many spectacular images are out 
there. Please consider sharing with your community through this end-of
year product. Please forward images that you want to be considered by 
April 30, 2005. We usually need to have the images finalized by September
in order to make the printing deadline by December. If you have images
that might be ready after April 30 but before September, send us something
to look at so we can decide whether to hold a place open.

EPO Coordinator


Item 2.  Future Chandra Science Workshops 

The CXC is organizing Chandra Science Workshops on topics of interest
to Chandra observers and theorists alike.  Workshop goals are to
optimize Chandra science productivity by   
    * identifying science areas ripe for progress
    * identifying the most pressing scientific questions 
    * debating good Chandra strategies to answer them

In July 2004, we hosted a workshop entitled
In July 2005, we will host
both at the Sheraton Commander Hotel here in Cambridge.  Nearly 100
people attend these meetings, and we aim to provide ample opportunity
for discussion and debate.  To see the evolving program,

We are soliciting ideas for another such workshop for 2006.
Before making a suggestion, consider the above goals.
You may also wish to check the recent and upcoming list of
International Astronomy Meetings at  

The scope of a workshop topic should be likely to generate between
50-100 attendees.  Chandra Science Workshops aim at 2-3 days duration,
have no registration fees, but also provide no travel reimbursement.  
If you suggest a meeting topic, please feel free to suggest some
likely members of a Scientific Organizing Committee as well.
We especially encourage participation of theorists.  Thanks for your

Best Regards,
Paul Green, for the Chandra Director's Office


Item 3.  Chandra Calibration Workshop 2005

The 2005 Chandra Calibration Workshop will be held on
October 31 and November 1, immediately preceding the
6 Years of Chandra Symposium.  Presentations are
solicited on various aspects of Chandra calibration
and its applications to data analysis.  For further
information, please contact	ccw@head.cfa.harvard.edu
or see	http://cxc.harvard.edu/ccw/index05.html .
