Motivation and rationale
The SAS workshop provides an introduction to the procedures and techniques of the Science Analysis System to reduce and analyse astronomical X-ray data from the XMM-Newton Observatory. No specific knowledge of X-ray data analysis is required to attend the workshop, although a general knowledge of XMM-Newton and its scientific payload is desirable. We recommend the workshop participants to refer to the XMM-Newton Users Handbook. Those wishing to familiarise themselves somewhat with the SAS may refer to the SAS Users Guide. The presentations from the previous workshop are also available here.
The 5-day workshop was organised around 5 half-days of presentations and 5 half-days of practical training (hands-on) sessions. The presentations covered basic topics related to XMM-Newton data analysis and SAS, such as:
