Chandra Electronic Announcement #5

First Constellation-X Spectroscopy Workshop

Columbia University
New York, NY

4 - 7 May 2003

C. Canizares, A. Fabian, J. Hughes, S. Kahn (chair), J. Kaastra,
D. Liedahl, H. Kunieda, B. Margon, G. Matt, F. Paerels, R. Rosner,
M. Shull, H. Tananbaum, K. Weaver, N. White,

This will be the first of a regular series of workshops designed to
review our understanding of X-ray spectroscopic processes in 
astrophysical sources, and to use that understanding to update 
and refine the Design Reference Mission for Constellation-X.

The initial workshop will highlight the spectroscopic results from the 
grating and CCD experiments on Chandra and XMM-Newton, and serve 
as a forum to discuss the X-ray spectroscopic scientific potential 
of Astro-E2. We are soliciting oral and poster presentations on 
a variety of topics, ranging from analysis of Chandra and 
XMM-Newton observational results to theoretical and laboratory 
studies of fundamental atomic processes.

After an opening reception on the evening of the 4th, the workshop will 
be comprised of 2 1/2 days of scientific sessions, closing around 
lunchtime on the 7th. It will be followed by a regular 
Constellation-X Facility Science Team meeting, open to all who 
are interested in attending, which will begin the afternoon of 
the 7th, and conclude during the early afternoon of the 8th.  
The FST meeting will also be held at Columbia.
