Building 34, Room W120

Organizers: Alice Harding, Demos Kazanas, Constantinos Kalapotharakos, Andrey Timokhin, Gabriele Brambilla

This is a workshop with focus on the physics of the magnetospheres and radiation of rotation-powered pulsars that will bring together a mix of theorists and observers. This field has recently been very active, with a plethora of new observational results from Fermi, XMM, Chandra and Air-Cherenkov telescopes, VERITAS, MAGIC and HESS, as well as significant progress in theoretical modeling. The workshop will take place on three full days June 6-8, 2016 at Goddard Space Flight Center, in Building 34, Room W120. The website for the workshop registration is available at
