Organiser: Michelle Arpizou

The 3-days workshop will be organized as two half-days of presentations, and 4 half-days of practical training (hands-on) sessions. The presentations will cover basic topics related to XMM-Newton data analysis, and SAS, such as:

  • Introduction to X-ray data analysis
  • XMM-Newton calibration status
  • SAS installation and set-up
  • SAS data reduction meta-tasks
  • Spectral analysis of point-like sources with EPIC and RGS
  • Spectral analysis of extended sources with EPIC
  • EPIC source detection
  • OM data analysis for imaging and timing modes
  • Processing Pipeline System products
  • The XMM-Newton Science Archive
  • The 1XMM Serendipitous Source Catalogue

Almost two thirds of the workshop time will be reserved to practical training sessions, where the participants, supported by XMM-Newton SOC scientists, will be able to accomplish reduction tasks on XMM-Newton public datasets, belonging to the SAS Scientific Validation.
