ANNOUNCEMENT: First Constellation-X Spectroscopy Workshop Columbia University New York, NY 4 - 7 May 2003 SCIENCE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE: J. Bregman, N. Brickhouse, 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.
