16th BONN workshop on the formation and evolution of neutron stars

Apr 19, 2023

The BONN neutron star workshops aim to bring together observers and theoreticians to exchange and discuss new ideas related to neutron star research.

There will be topical sessions related to NSs science across the spectrum, from gamma rays to radio, and gravitational waves. Each presentation has a duration of 15 minutes (including Q&A).  At the end of the meeting, there will be a wrap-up session, in which the main topics and open questions will be discussed. Lunches and coffee breaks are sponsored by the MPIfR and there will be an optional conference dinner at your own expense.
