Description

The study of cosmic plasmas in X-ray wavelength improves momentously with the launch of Chandra, XMM-Newton, Suzaku, and Hitomi. Even more exciting time is yet to come, with XRISM mission (to be launched in FY2022) and its followers. High-resolution X-ray spectroscopy with XRISM will open up a new, transformative research landscape in the science of hot plasma flow, metallicity circulation, accretion and outflow, and the evolution of hot baryons in and beyond galaxies. For this to happen, we need to make rapid improvements in plasma modeling, spectroscopic analysis technique, and precision laboratory astrophysical measurements. 
This workshop will be a mixed conference and school mainly targeted for young researchers including graduate students and postdocs: international experts in X-ray spectroscopy will give lectures and discuss the core science questions and the new parameter space expected with XRISM, which will be helpful for young researchers to develop potential science cases for the XRISM's first-round guest observations.
