First Constellation-X Spectroscopy Workshop

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.
