Chandra Cal/CIAO Workshop

The Chandra X-ray Center (CXC) offers a series of workshops aimed at helping users to work with the Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) software.

[New] (12 Apr 2016) The CXC is solicting interest in a one day CIAO workshop on August 15, 2016 just prior to the start of the Chandra Science for the Next Decade workshop. Depending on the level of interest, the workshop may be extended into the morning of August 16. The CIAO workshop will be tailored to the attendees but usually consists of a few talks in the morning with ample time in the afternoon hands-on with CXC experts to assist individuals with their specific data analysis questions.

Possible topics for the talks include:

  • Introduction to X-ray astronomy
  • Advanced CIAO
  • Topics in Chandra Calibration
  • Intro or Advanced Sherpa
  • Intro or Advanced MARX
  • Intro or Advanced ds9

Users interested in attending the CIAO Workshop are asked to fill out the Registration Form. Registered users will be contacted with more details closer to the date of the workshop.

Information on other past CIAO workshops - which includes electronic copies of all the handouts and presentations - may be found in the Previous Workshops webpages. Material from previous Cal workshops can be found on the Chandra Calibration Review pages.

If you are planning your own CIAO workshop and would like to request support from the CXC, please submit the relevant details to the Helpdesk. Proposals will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
