Workshop Rationale

In the context of the XMM Next Decade projects, we propose a three-day workshop to bring together astronomers interested in a large-scale (100 deg2 scale) extragalactic survey with XMM-Newton. The purpose of the meeting would be to examine the scientific arguments for such a survey, the technical feasibility of conducting the survey with XMM-Newton, and the practical steps needed to make best use of the data that would be returned. Now is an excellent time for such a workshop, since groups have gained considerable experience in working with XMM-Newton data.

Topics to be addressed include:

It is proposed that the workshop be based around large groups undertaking large-scale surveys of this type, with specific invitations to:

and with an open invitation to others, with a maximum suggested meeting size of 50 participants
