   XMMXCS (XMM Cluster Survey) Write:<<XMMXCS JHHMM.m+DDMM>>
<<XMMXCS JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS.s>> N: about 5000 Object:Cluster of G  (SIMBAD class: ClG = Cluster of Galaxies) Note:The XMM Cluster Survey (XCS, see http://www.xcs-home.org) is a major new serendipitous galaxy cluster survey, based on public archival XMM-Newton data.
We are starting to discover clusters in such data, and so wish to register our proposed acronym before we begin to refer to them in print.
The survey is described in ref. 2001ApJ...547..594R.
2006ApJ...646L..13S: first ref. with a XMMXCS object.
2012MNRAS.423.1024M: first data release (N=503 clusters, format JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS.s).
