The Structure and Signals of Neutron Stars, from Birth to Death

This conference aims at bringing together people working in astrophysics of neutron stars, both on the theoretical and observational aspects. The following topics will be discussed : – Equation of state of dense matter, including hyperon, kaon and quark degrees of freedom – Neutrino emission and cooling of compact stars – Superconductivity-superfluidity – Constraints from EM observations – Transients – Gravitational wave emission – Models for Supernovae and for Gamma Ray Bursts – Magnetars.
