50 years astronomical X-ray spectroscopy in the Netherlands

50 years astronomical X-ray spectroscopy in the Netherlands

The meeting was held online through Zoom. 


Slack workspace

Next to the scheduled Zoom meetings, we use a dedicated Slack workspace to facilitate discussions between participants. The workspace features several channels, for example:

  • #general: General announcements and matters related to the organisation of the meeting.
  • #talks: Ask questions and discuss topics raised in the scheduled talks.
  • #contributions: Advertise and discuss other contributions put forward by participants, like posters, slides, videos, etc. See also the contribution repository on Zenodo, described at the bottom of this page.
  • #socialize: Channel for other topics that you would like to discuss with the other participants.

All registered participants will receive an invitation link for the Slack workspace by email in the week before the meeting. Please observe our code of conduct below when using the Slack environment.


Code of conduct

The on-line Zoom meeting (including Slack platform and follow up discussions) is to be a constructive, open and free flow of ideas that engages all of the participants. 

To that end, it is expected that attendees use welcoming and inclusive language, be courteous and respectful towards each other, and graciously accept constructive criticism.

Please bring any incidents which are contrary to these goals to the attention of the organizers of the meeting.


Meeting contribution repository (Zenodo.org)

Because this meeting is held online, we would like international participants from inconvenient time zones to be able to follow the meeting asynchronously. We therefore ask the speakers if we can make a video recording of their talk and make that available online. We offer the possibility to publish the talk (the video, the slides, or both) on the conference community page on Zenodo.org.

Zenodo upload instructions

Zenodo is an international repository for scientific content aimed at storing scientific data, software and knowledge for the long term and make them citable. Each upload will be stored permanently and be assigned a digital object identifier (DOI), which is a permanent link to the content that is citable.  

To upload to Zenodo, you can either use an ORCID or Github account. Many journals and proposal systems require an ORCID nowadays, so if you do not have either account, getting an ORCID is recommended, because it is also useful for other purposes.

Since the uploaded files cannot be deleted or modified, it is recommended to test your upload and the upload process first on https://sandbox.zenodo.org/. On the sandbox site, uploads will be removed after a couple of days. Please note there is no community for our meeting on the sandbox site.

When you are ready to upload your talk, poster or other contribution to the main Zenodo site, please use the unique upload link for this meeting: https://zenodo.org/deposit/new?c=spex50years This will make sure that your upload can be added to the community page of our meeting.

When filling out the upload form, please note the following:

  • Make sure that you upload the right file.
  • Make sure "Conference 50 years of spectroscopy..." is visible in the "Communities" tab.
  • Let Zenodo reserve a DOI in the "Basic information" tab.
  • You can add related identifiers of, for example your papers' ADS record, to the "Related/alternate identifiers' tab.
  • Citations to other papers can be added in the "References" tab if applicable.
  • You can make your contribution better finable by adding subjects in the "Subjects" tab.

Filling out the upload form should be rather self explanatory. If you have questions, please contact Jelle de Plaa.

After publishing your Zenodo record (button publish), you contribution needs to be admitted manually to the conference community. The organiser will do this regularly.
