XMM-Newton: The Next Decade
Start date: 05 Jun 2007
Address: European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), Villafranca del Castillo, Madrid, Spain
This workshop will summarise our current knowledge of X-ray astrophysics, discuss some of the major achievements of the past years and identify the fundamental questions still to be addressed. With this starting point, the main focus of the workshop will be to identify the scientific topics with the highest scientific importance and impact and the observing programs of maximum long-term value to the entire astronomical community. These programs may require large amounts of observing time on one or more targets or sky areas, collaborations of many astronomers from several institutions, innovative ideas or applications, or modified instrument modes.
