Organizied by the Ioffe Physical Technical Institute

First Announcement

The Colloquium will be held at the Ioffe Physical Technical Institute on May 25 and 26, 1999. This will be the fifth gathering on neutron star physics in St.Petersburg (after those in 1988, 1992, 1995, and 1997). Its aim is to bring together those who are interested in physics and astrophysics of neutron stars. All subjects relevant to theory and observations of neutron stars are welcome: radiation (from radio to hard gamma-rays), origin, evolution in binary systems, merging, soft gamma repeaters, magnetars, internal structure, atmospheres, neutrino emission, etc. The Colloquium is planned as an internal Russian event (the sessions will be mainly in Russian), but scientists from other countries may also be present.

The Organizing Committee

The sessions will include several invited talks (30--40 minutes), larger number of contributed talks (10-20 minutes), and possibly a poster session. The participants are requested to submit an Application form and Abstract of Presentation (if any) by electronic mail to by April 25. The applications submitted later will be disregarded.

The proposed contributions will be selected by the Organizing Committee. Abstracts of accepted contributions will be published. An abstract should be in English, not larger than 1 page in total. Its LaTeX form Abstract.tex can be requested by e-mail or can be retrieved via internet from ann11.html. The Web-page will contain also other information on the Colloquium.

A limited financial support might be available. Additional information about this support, scientific program, accommodation, registration fee, weather forecast, etc. will be presented in the Second Announcement to be issued not later than on May 10.
