2. Workshop: "X-ray Binaries in the Chandra and XMM-Newton Era
   (with an emphasis on Targets of Opportunity)"



A web site with information about the calibration workshop to be held
in Cambridge on Nov 6 and 7 is now available at


Registration as well as abstract submission can be done through
this site.   

In conjunction with the calibration workshop, CIAO expert workshops

Item 2.  Workshop: "X-ray Binaries in the Chandra and XMM-Newton Era"
         (with an emphasis on Targets of Opportunity)"

We are pleased to announce a new workshop dedicated to recent results
from Chandra and XMM-Newton and addressing the present and future role
of triggering.

"X-ray Binaries in the Chandra and XMM-Newton Era (with an emphasis on
Targets of Opportunity)"

Workshop goals:
* To identify the scientific topics of greatest interest, and to
  explore directions for this field as the Chandra and XMM-Newton
  missions mature.

* To articulate the present and future role of triggering in this

* To review progress in the study of X-ray binaries with Chandra and

* To facilitate dialogue between observers, theorists, and observatory


Full information regarding this workshop can be found at the official
conference website:
