Summer School: “Neutron stars: theory, observations and gravitational waves emission”, Sofia, Bulgaria

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the fourth and the concluding NewCompstar school “Neutron stars: theory, observations and gravitational waves emission” to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, between 11 and 15 September.

As a concluding NewCompStar school, the school is focused on a broader area, instead of choosing a particular topic. The topics include numerical relativity, relativistic hydrodynamics, neutron star binaries, neutron star oscillations, hadronic matter and high density equation of state, pulsar timing and gamma ray burst observations. Part of the lectures will focus not only on general relativity, but also on alternative theories of gravity.

The school will be scheduled as follows – up to four 1.5h lectures per day with two coffee breaks and a lunch, one excursion (sightseeing) in the afternoon, and one poster session.

According to the Compstar policy we shall partly cover the travel and accommodation expenses to all eligible participants. In order to apply, students are requested to provide a CV.

Details on the program, venue, reimbursement are available on the web-site.

On behalf of the organizing committee,
D. Doneva (University of Tuebingen),
S. Yazadjiev (University of Sofia)
