The aim of this meeting is to learn how to use the Simulation of X-ray Telescopes (SIXTE) software to produce simulations of X-ray observations for a large number of different missions and in particular for the Athena mission.
The workshop, conducted by the SIXTE team, is divided into four sessions:
A general overview of SIXTE design.
Practical: Point Source Simulations.
Practical: Point source simulations.
Practical: Multiple point sources.
Practical: simulating extended sources.
Practical: specifying imaging detectors.
Simulating Transition Edge Detectors (TES).
Practical: Extended sources and Mosaics.
Practical: High-resolution spectroscopy.
The number of participants is limited to 25.
