A review talk by the EXTraS PI, Andrea De Luca from INAF/IASF-Milan and several posters mark a massive contribution of EXTraS at the conference XMM-Newton: The Next Decade, held on May 9-11, 2016 at ESAC, near Madrid, in Spain.

Martino Marelli and David Salvetti from INAF/IASF-Milan present some techniques developed within EXTraS WP2, to deal with background and to adapt Bayesian blocks to the XMM-Newton case, respectively.

Andrea Tiengo from IUSS Pavia summarises the techniques developed within EXTraS WP4 to recognise and characterise transients, showing also some early results.

Simon Rosen from the University of Leicester illustrates some of the techniques and products developed within EXTraS WP5 to characterise the long term variability of XMM sources.

Miriam Oertel from ECAP at the University of Erlangen, presents the approach developed within EXTraS WP7 for characterising XMM sources in the multi-wavelength domain, and automatically classify them.

Finally, Daniele Pizzocaro from INAF/IASF-Milan and University of Insubria contributes two EXTraS-related posters to the conference. The first describes an X-ray burst from a young stellar object and its astrophysical implications. The second illustrates a fruitful synergy with the Kepler mission, on the connection between magnetic activity and rotation in stars.
