Chandra Electronic Announcement #15
"Clusters of Galaxies: New Insights from XMM-Newton, Chandra and INTEGRAL" to be held as part of the 35th COSPAR Scientific Assembly Paris, France, 18-25 July 2004
Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to announce the meeting "Clusters of Galaxies: New Insights from XMM-Newton, Chandra and INTEGRAL", which will be session E1.2 of the 35th COSPAR Scientific Assembly, to be held in Paris, France, over the period 18-25 July, 2004. The study of clusters of galaxies has made significant advances with the launch of Chandra and XMM-Newton. Thanks to their higher spatial and spectral resolution as well as their higher throughput these observatories have allowed us to investigate clusters in much greater detail and up to higher redshift than was possible with previous observatories. With Integral we now have the possibility to measure and resolve non-thermal emission from clusters. This session will discuss the latest observational and theoretical progress in key issues such as the formation and evolution of clusters, the role of non-gravitational processes, dark matter content and dynamical state. The meeting will take place over two sucessive days during the week of the COSPAR assembly. Sessions are planned on: * Physics in the core of clusters * Physics of Merger events * The dark matter content and distribution * The role of non-gravitational processes and the ICM enrichment * Observation of high z clusters and the evolution of cluster properties * The Warm intergalactic medium * Non thermal emission They will be introduced by one or two reviews. We invite you to participate to the meeting and to submit abstracts for contributed talks or posters via the COSPAR WWW site (see below). We look forward to seeing you in Paris, Monique Arnaud and Jelle Kaastra for the SOC. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ * The Scientific Organizing Committee * M.
