AtomDB Work week and Workshop, 29th October-2nd November 2018

The seventh AtomDB Workshop will be held at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge, MA from the 29th October-2nd November 2018.

The workshop will bring together producers of atomic data, both theoretical and experimental, with the users of atomic data relevant to X-ray astronomy. The workshop aims to identify progress in the Lab Astro field which is directly relevant to X-ray astronomy, show how to use this data to observers, and to show the results of using the atomic physics to analyze astrophysical spectra.

On the Monday 29th to Wednesday 31st we will hold our work-week. During these we meet informally in the morning with people who wish learn in detail about AtomDB, or to collaborate on larger projects with us. This can be an excellent opportunity for students to learn more about the AtomDB project, atomic physics, and spectroscopy. We then break into smaller groups during the day to advance these projects. The workshop, which begins on Thursday, will feature more formal talks, tutorials and (depending on demand) poster sessions.

Previous AtomDB workshops have proven to be a fruitful place for developing new analysis techniques, refining proposals for new laboratory measurements, and simply building new collaborations. We especially encourage those who would like to work with the AtomDB team or other attendees on atomic data problems connected to astrophysics, whether it be incorporating new data into the database, identifying new data needs, or learning how to use the existing models to analyze astrophysical data.

Full details of registration and accommodation will appear closer to the time. In the meantime, if you are interested in attending, please fill out the form below or email the organisers and we will keep you updated when registration opens. It is not expected that a registration fee will be charged for the meeting, although historically we have collected a small amount (roughly $50) to cover the cost of coffee breaks, etc. Directions to the CfA can be found on the CfA website.
