Purpose of this workshop
This workshop is a kickoff of collaboration among the scientists who are studying high energy plasma physics with X-ray spectroscopic data. In this workshop, the participants will learn how to analyze existing solar X-ray spectroscopic data, namely, solar focusing X-ray imaging spectroscopic data obtained by FOXSI and NuSTAR, and solar X-ray spectroscopic data taken by MinXSS and Hinotori. This experience will create new ideas of science, new methods of data analysis, and new interdisciplinary collaborations.
Missions whose data will be analyzed in this workshop
  - the FOXSI sounding rockets: http://foxsi.umn.edu/
  - the MinXSS CubeSat: http://lasp.colorado.edu/home/minxss/
  - the NuSTAR satellite: https://www.nustar.caltech.edu/page/sun
  - the Hinotori satellite/SOX: http://www.isas.jaxa.jp/en/missions/spacecraft/past/hinotori.html
