The third AtomDB Workshop will be held at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, MA, on August 21st and 22nd 2013, with an accompanying work week running from August 19th to 23rd.
The workshop will be a 1.5 day meeting beginning on Wednesday afternoon, bringing 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 astropnomy, show how to use this data to observers, and to show the results of using the atomic physics to analyze astrophysical spectra.
The work week is also open to all and is for those who wish 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.
Directions to the CfA can be found here. A few other last minute points:
We had hoped to have a fee-free meeting, but the cost of coffee and lunch has pushed it beyond our minimal budget. Therefore we unfortunately require that each attendee pays a $25 registration fee. This will cover all coffee and breakfast breaks, and lunch on Thursday. I'm sorry for the late decision on this, but it was unfortunately unavoidable.
We will be able to accept cash & check, but no credit cards. Receipts can be provided.
On Wednesday night we will will go for dinner at the Russell House Tavern in Harvard Square (russellhousecambridge.com). We would like to provide numbers to the restaurant as early as possible. If you are interested in joining, please let me know so I can add you to the list. Note that this is not included in the registration fee, you will be required to pay for your own dinner.
The talk schedule is now available.
We have several people interested in remote participation. The meeting will be broadcast at http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/events/webcast/, and if you wish to talk to the room, use Skype (username: Jagophile).
