New Results in X-ray Astronomy (UK-XRA 2006)

Chandra in flight XMM-Newton over the Earth Swift and a gamma-ray burst

Proceedings index: Oral presentations


The long-established series of annual one-day X-ray astronomy meetings in the UK, usually held at Leicester University, will this year be hosted by the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL), Department of Space and Climate Physics of University College London, on Tuesday 11th July 2006. As usual, the meeting will consist of contributed talks by the X-ray astronomy community from around the UK, on the subject of 'New Results in X-Ray Astronomy'.

We are expecting that the programme will be an exciting combination of talks on the world-class science being undertaken in the UK with the Chandra, XMM-Newton, and especially Swift satellites, not forgetting the RXTE and INTEGRAL observatories.

All interested persons are invited to attend. In particular this meeting will provide an opportunity for newer members of the UK high energy astronomical community to present results, and to meet with members of other groups working in this area. There will be ample space for posters.

The meeting is expected to start at 10:30 am (coffee available from 10:00 am) and end at 5:30 pm (immediately followed by a reception). Those interested in attending should forward their contact details to Mat Page (, with copy to Graziella Branduardi-Raymont ( by 20th June 2006 at the latest. Please let us also know if you intend to offer a talk or a poster, and send us an abstract. There will not be a registration fee, nor formal proceedings from the meeting, but the presentations will be posted on this Website.
