The topics include rotation powered pulsars, pulsar emission mechanisms, pulsar wind nebulae, magnetars, isolated neutron stars, central compact objects, accreting X-ray pulsars (including millisecond pulsars), neutron stars in low-mass X- ray binaries, X-ray bursts, equation of state, structure and evolution of neutron stars, mechanisms of supernova explosions.

The previous conferences in the series were Russian events with participation of some foreign scientists. This conference was international; the working language is English. It was organized by the Ioffe Institute (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), Sternberg Astronomical Institute (Moscow, Russia), and University of Oulu (Oulu, Finland). Because of technical reasons, the number of participants was limited to 150.

It was an enjoyable neutron star week in Saint-Petersburg.
