XMM-Newton AO-11 Long Term PlanThe scheduling of the eleventh cycle of XMM-Newton observations, AO-11, started on 1st May 2012 and is expected to finish at the end of April 2013.
On 8th May, the long-term scheduling plan for the AO-11 period has been released at:
Principal Investigators of pending XMM-Newton observations can check this plan, especially if scheduling constraints were granted following the Time Allocation Committee recommendations.
Conference Announcement: XMM-Newton Science Workshop 2013The XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre will be organising a workshop in the spring of next year, with the following subject, dates and venue:
Energetic Phenomena in Isolated Neutron Stars,
Pulsar Wind Nebulae and Supernova Remnants
22nd - 24th May 2013
XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre at ESA's
European Space Astronomy Centre, Madrid, Spain
Aims and Scope of the Workshop:
High-energy observations have strongly changed our view of isolated neutron stars, the nebulae powered by the relativistic winds of energetic pulsars and the non-thermal emission from supernova remnants. The study of these objects in the last few years has taken advantage of a multiwavelength approach, thanks to the combination of powerful X-ray satellites, with facilities operating in the gamma-ray range and up to the highest energies covered by ground based Cherenkov telescopes.
The purpose of this Workshop is to discuss the most recent results on the high-energy phenomena occurring in isolated neutron stars and related objects like pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants and gamma-ray binaries.
The Workshop web page is available at:
Details on the registration and abstract submission process as well as on important dates will be posted there in due time and announced in a future XMM-Newton Newsletter.

EWASS 2012 - Symposium 4 The Galactic Plane Reloaded:
The main aim of this Symposium is to bring together communities active
in different topics and different ranges of the electromagnetic
spectrum in Galactic Astronomy, to create synergies and maximize the
power of multi-wavelength and multi-mission research to boost
