XMM-Newton 2016 Science Workshop - XMM-Newton: The Next Decade
Start date: 10 May 2016
Address: European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), Villafranca del Castillo, Madrid, Spain
The recent generation of high energy observatories has enabled unprecedented progress to be made in our understanding of astrophysics in the X-ray domain. Current technical evaluations suggest that the XMM-Newton spacecraft and its scientific instruments may continue to provide first class X-ray observations well into the next decade. Other X-ray missions are planned to be launched soon, including Astro-H and e-ROSITA. Coupled with new ground-based developments, this will open up new exciting opportunities for multi-wavelength and follow-up observations, to which XMM-Newton is ideally placed to play a major role.
