Workshop aims

This workshop offers the opportunity to get a full overview of the different catalogues proposed in the framework of ESA's XMM-Newton mission. A range of other high energy and multiwavelength catalogues will also be presented, as well as synergies between these catalogues. The workshop will run over three days, with invited, sollicited and contributed talks covering all of aspects of astrophysics including stars, compact objects, galaxies and clusters, where catalogues have been used to make advances in that area. Poster space will also be available.

The workshop will take place at IRAP in Toulouse, France. It is free to attend but the capacity is limited to 90 people.
