X-Rays from Young Stars, the Sun, and Compact Systems Workshop
December 16-17, 2004
TIARA, Taiwan
ASIAA will not contact participants for credit card information by phone. Privacy and Security Policy


This workshop took place as part of the topical programs of TIARA. The format of two-day intensive discussions was similar to a focused working group bringing together researchers active in the related areas. The invitees contain both theoreticians and observers and through the talks and discussions we intended to achieve a dialogue between working scientists in Taiwan and experts from around the globe.

A few key x-ray missions were particularly emphasized in the fields of star formation and solar physics. The COUP project, "Chandra Orion Ultra-deep Project", led by Penn State professor Eric Feigelson, and RHESSI, "Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager", led by Berkeley professor Bob Lin, had drawn great interests from participants from all areas and theorists for models.
