XMM-Newton 2019 Science Workshop
Astrophysics of hot plasma in extended X-ray sources12-14 June 2019
European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC)
Villafranca del Castillo
Further details will be posted in due time.
Hot plasmas dominate the X-ray emission of supernova remnants, much of the interstellar medium in galaxies, galactic halos and winds, and the intra-cluster medium in clusters of galaxies. Plasma characteristics, observed through their X-ray morphology and spectral properties, reveal the physical processes at work and the structure and evolution of these systems. XMM-Newton and Chandra have been accumulating rich resources of emission line spectra with medium and high spectral resolution. Building on this heritage, in the next decade the XRISM mission and the Athena X-ray observatory will yield unprecedented high-spectral resolution mapping of extended sources. Accurate plasma codes will become even more essential for data interpretation.
This workshop aims to review our current understanding of these X-ray plasmas, their modelling and their astrophysical implications. The goal is to prepare the younger generation and to foster cooperation between the participants on common astrophysics issues, on plasma code requirements, modelling of X-ray spectra, and data reduction of extended sources.

Registration and Abstract
The registration fee will be 80 €. The fee includes the coffee breaks, a printed issue of the refereed conference proceedings, and a shuttle bus transfer between Madrid and ESAC.
Registration and abstract submission is planned to open at the end of January 2019, with deadline for abstract submission 01 March 2019.
Decisions about accepted presentations (talks and posters) will be communicated before the early registration deadline.
Conference proceedings will be published as a regular issue of the refereed journal Astronomical Notes.
Venue and Accommodation
The workshop will be held at the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), near Madrid, Spain. We will not block hotel rooms for the conference in any particular hotel, but a list of recommended hotels together with useful links will be posted soon.
A shuttle bus service between Madrid and ESAC will be provided.
We are pleased to offer a Childcare Service during the three days of the workshop. The service will be given on-site at ESAC and will be available for all registered participants.
