CIAO Workshops

The Chandra X-ray Center (CXC) offers a series of workshops aimed at helping users to work with the Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) software.

Next CIAO Workshop in Bologna, Italy, 14-15 September 2019

The next CIAO workshop is being planned for 14-15 September 2019 in Bologna, Italy following the X-ray Astronomy 2019: Current Challenges and New Frontiers in the Next Decade conference.

Registration for the Chandra/CIAO workshop is separate from the conference registration and you do not have to attend the X-ray meeting to attend the Chandra/CIAO workshop.

The registration deadline is 31 July 2019. Please register as soon as possible since there must be a minimum number of registrants by that date for the workshop to occur. There is no registration fee to attend the Chandra/CIAO workshop, but registration is required. Attendees are responsible for their own travel and accomodation expenses.

Supplementary Material

Students and new CIAO users may find the following material useful:

Information on other past CIAO workshops - which includes electronic copies of all the handouts and presentations - may be found in the Previous Workshops webpages. Material from previous Cal workshops can be found on the Chandra Calibration Review pages.

Organizing a workshop?

If you are planning your own CIAO workshop and would like to request support from the CXC, please submit the relevant details to the CXC Helpdesk. Proposals will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The last Chandra/CIAO workshop took take place at the AAS233 meeting in Seattle, WA, from 05 January 2019 through 06 January 2019.
