CALIBRATING HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE: POST SERVICING MISSION May 15 -- 17, 1995 Baltimore, Maryland ***** Second Announcement ***** This is the second announcement for a workshop on calibrating Hubble Space Telescope Data after the servicing mission. The workshop will be held at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore from May 15th to May 17th 1995. I. Rationale The rationale behind this workshop is to bring together the HST community and the STScI instrument scientists and other STScI staff so they can exchange ideas on calibration of HST data and its analysis. It has been nearly a year since the servicing mission launched the WFPC2, and changed the characteristics of the FOC, FOS and GHRS. Hence, it is time to assemble the collected wisdom of the HST community to summarize our current understanding of HST and the science instruments onboard. II. Workshop Schedule An outline of the schedule for the meeting is given below. At this time we have firm commitments from all invited speakers. Their names are included in the agenda. No assignments for contributed talks have yet been made. These will be selected from the abstracts we receive after this announcement.

Proceedings In addition to the above talks, contributed papers or posters are invited from all participants. The deadline date is 1st May 1995, so that we can arrange the working sessions. The proceedings of the workshop will be published as part of the STSCI publication series. Each registered participant will be mailed a personal copy of the volume. In order to achieve this fast turn around, we request that we receive the camera-ready manuscripts by July 31, 1995. Instructions on the style and on how to obtain sample LaTeX files will be given during the conference. Ample space will be provided for the reviews and for the poster and oral contributions. IV.
