This August we will be holding a four-day meeting on "Radio Pulsars"
island of Crete in the Mediterranean. Meeting dates will be Monday,
August 26 through Thursday, August 29, 2002, inclusive.
A reception will be held on the evening of Sunday August 25.
The meeting is being held in part to recognise the contributions
of Andrew Lyne, Dick Manchester and Joe Taylor on or near their
60th birthdays. The focus will be on contemporary topics in
radio pulsar astronomy, including results of recent searches and
timing programs, the evolution of pulsar binaries and the pulsar
population, instrumentation for pulsar observations, pulsars in
globular clusters, pulsar-related observations of the interstellar
medium, links to other wavelengths, etc.
The venue of the meeting is the conference centre
at the Agronomic Institute of Chania. For details
Chania is an ancient city on the Northern coast of Crete.
A conference dinner will be held on the evening of Wednesday, August 28, with entertainment provided by a local Cretan folk orchestra.
As this is the peak of the holiday season, flights to
Crete are likely to be booked out VERY SOON. We encourage
you to book early or catch a ferry.
The conference fee will be approximately A$450 =~ $225 USD and will
provide participants with the conference dinner and
a copy of the proceedings.
This meeting is being sponsored by Swinburne University of Technology's Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing.
