XMM-NEWTON USERS HANDBOOK UPDATE FOR AO-20
The XMM-Newton Users Handbook (UHB) has been updated to version 2.18 in preparation for the next Announcement of Opportunity (AO-20) which will open next 18th of August.
The UHB contains information on the instrumentation on board XMM-Newton and serves as the main technical support document for proposal preparation, based on which potential XMM-Newton users can assess the technical feasibility of their planned observations.
The XMM-Newton Users Handbook is on-line at
Alternatively, pdf and postscript versions of the UHB can be downloaded from the "XMM-Newton Proposer's Info and Manuals" portal
XMM-NEWTON USERS' GROUP MEETING: PRESENTATIONS AVAILABLE
The XMM-Newton Users' Group met on the 17th and 18th June 2020. The presentations of the meeting are available at
LET US KNOW ABOUT XMM-NEWTON RELATED PH.D. AND PRIZES FOR XMM-NEWTON RESULTS
As already announced in previous issues of this Newsletter, the XMM-Newton team is collecting information about the completion of doctorates and Ph.D. theses based on (or making use of) XMM-Newton observations.
We would appreciate if you - being a candidate or a supervisor of a doctorate - could let us know details through the page
Also we would be grateful if you could inform us (via a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, with subject "Ph.D. thesis work") in case you are aware of theses from, or supervised by, colleagues that make use of XMM-Newton data but are not yet included in the above list.
In addition, the XMM-Newton SOC would like to establish a list of prizes won based on XMM-Newton results. Information about such prizes can be sent via e-mail to the Helpdesk (email@example.com) indicating the name of the winner, year, prize name and granting institution.
