1.  Chandra Cycle 11 Research Program

2.  Conference:  High-resolution X-ray Spectroscopy: past, present and future


Item 1.  Chandra Cycle 11 Research Program

The list of targets plus archive and theory proposals recommended 
by the Cycle 11 peer review is now posted at:


from a link in the "Cycle 11 Lists" area.

This page also includes separate lists of the joint time approved as part of
Chandra programs in the target list and of the number of triggers
allocated for TOO programs which include alternate lists of targets.

Item 2. High-resolution X-ray Spectroscopy: past, present and future

High-resolution X-ray Spectroscopy: past, present and future

SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research and Utrecht 
University are pleased to announce the conference: 

High-resolution X-ray spectroscopy: past, present and future 

to be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, on 2010 March 15-17. 

Since the launch of XMM-Newton and Chandra ten years ago, 
high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy has proven to be a very 
powerful tool in astrophysics. It offers unique diagnostics 
to study almost any object in the Universe. The grating 
spectrometers aboard XMM-Newton and Chandra still continue 
to provide excellent data, while imaging calorimeters are 
being prepared for future missions like ASTRO-H and IXO. 
The synergy with other wavelength bands like the UV will 
be boosted by the addition of COS to HST. In this meeting, 
we foresee presentations on highlights and the state-of-the-art 
of X-ray spectroscopy for a broad range of objects and on 
the prospects for future studies.
