14th IACHEC meeting

Shonan Village Center (Japan), 20-23 May 2019

The 14th IACHEC workshop will be held at the beautiful Shonan Village Center in Japan, overlooking mount Fuji.

In addition to our usual working group sessions, we will be hosting two special sessions. The first session will focus on the challenges associated with the calibration of future high resolution spectroscopy instruments, and the second on the impact of calibration errors on popular models with a emphasis on the limitations it has on the interpretation of the source physics.
