CHANDRA ELECTRONIC ANNOUNCEMENT NUMBER 11
X-RAY AND RADIO CONNECTIONS
3 - 6 February 2004
Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
We are very pleased to announce the "X-RAY AND RADIO CONNECTIONS"
workshop; a meeting focused on scientific areas where cross
fertilization between theory and observations in both X-Ray and Radio
wavebands provides a key to the underlying physical processes.
The meeting will be held in the sunny and historic town of Santa Fe,
New Mexico (USA) from Tuesday February 3, through Friday February 6,
2004. This date is well before the proposal deadlines of the major
X-Ray and Radio astronomical observing facilities.
This first announcement is aimed at informing all colleagues about the
meeting. We suggest pre-registering for the meeting by visiting the
workshop web site at http://www.aoc.nrao.edu/events/xraydio/
We would appreciate your sharing this announcement with all those whom
might be interested in attending. We apologize if you have received
this announcement more than once.
"Almost by definition, high energy sources are non-thermal and emit
throughout the electromagnetic and other spectra and spectrally
chauvinist interpretations of their behavior are incomplete"
Currently, the observers of high-energy phenomena are split between
several communities that independently investigate objects in their
own waveband. This meeting will provide an opportunity to review
underlying physical models, compare x-ray and radio observations,
start new collaborations and develop a list of areas where new
observations and theoretical development could significantly advance
our understanding in the next few years.
The meeting will include reviews, contributed talks, and posters on
the major scientific topics listed below. The organizers hope to
emphasize both invited and contributed talks from younger members of
the community. Anyone interested in participating is encouraged to
pre-register at the meeting website.
Massive star cluster outflows
Colliding stellar winds
Pulsar wind nebulae
Dissipation of jets and lobes

mid August 2003 First Announcement, pre-registration
late September 2003 Second Announcement, call for abstracts, registration
1 December 2003 Hotel & payment deadline for registration
10 December 2003 Abstracts due
5 January 2004 Deadlines for late registration
The meeting will be held in the Hilton Hotel in Santa Fe, New
Mexico, USA. The Hilton Santa Fe is conveniently located near the
historic plaza, where Native American, Hispanic and Anglo American
cultures meet and lots of eateries, art and tourist shops are
present. Furthermore, the state capitol is also a good starting
point for numerous indoor and outdoor activities; in February mostly
skiing. Santa Fe is highly ranked in the top tourist attractions in
Northern America and fortunately the hotel has agreed to provide
rooms three days before and three days after the meeting for the
same rate. Santa Fe has only a small airport, so most travelers will
arrive in Albuquerque and take a shuttle or rental car to Santa Fe.
