commemorating the 100th birthday of Yakov Borisovich Zel'dovich
July 28 — August 1, 2014, St. Petersburg, Russia
This was the 10th gathering on neutron star physics in Saint Petersburg (after those in 1988, 1992, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2005, 2008, and 2011). In 2014 the conference commemorated the 100th birthday of Yakov Borisovich Zel'dovich (1914—1987), the famous Soviet physicist and astrophysicist.
The conference covers all major topics of observations and theory of neutron stars, including rotation powered pulsars, pulsar emission mechanisms, pulsar wind nebulae, magnetars, isolated cooling neutron stars, central compact objects, accreting X-ray pulsars (particularly, 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 and neutron star mergers.
The conference was held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from July 28th till August 1st, 2014. The working language is English. The scientific program includes a number of invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations subject to selection by the international Scientific Organizing Committee.
