AtomDB Work week and Workshop 2013

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.
