Chandra Electronic Announcement #16
"YOUNG NEUTRON STARS AND SUPERNOVA REMNANTS" to be held as part of the 35th COSPAR Scientific Assembly Paris, France, 18-25 July 2004

Registration and abstract submission NOW OPEN:
-------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to announce the meeting "Young Neutron Stars and Supernova Remnants", which will be session E1.4 of the 35th COSPAR Scientific Assembly, to be held in Paris, France, over the period 18-25 July, 2004. We invite you to participate in this meeting and in the COSPAR assembly. "Young Neutron Stars and Supernova Remnants" will address recent observational and theoretical developments taking place in the study of young neutron stars, supernova remnants, and the interactions between them. Issues addressed will include neutron star demographics, birth properties and thermal evolution; the interaction of supernova remnants with their environment; high-energy and non-thermal emission from neutron stars and supernova remnants; and the connection between pulsar magnetospheres, winds and nebulae. Session E1.4 will take place over three (to be confirmed) sucessive days during the week of the COSPAR assembly. Within this event, two special half-day joint sessions will be held: with event E1.5, on "Nucleosynthesis and Supernova Remnants", and with event E1.6, on "Supernova Remnants and Cosmic Rays". It is likely that the other sessions of events E1.5 and E1.6 will be held on adjacent but non-overlapping days, so that those interested may attend all three events. Abstract submission and conference registration are now open. We invite you to submit abstracts for talks and posters via the COSPAR WWW site (see below). There will be room within the programme to upgrade some contributed talks to longer (solicited) talks if such talks are considered of special interest to participants. Further information is contained below. We look forward to seeing you in Paris!
