The origin, equilibrium and evolution of the magnetic field in neutron stars

The Relativistic Astrophysics Group of the University of Alicante is hosting a NewCompstar WG1-WG3 workshop with main topic:
“Origin, evolution and observable effects of the magnetic field in neutron stars”. The meeting will take place from the 13th to 15th of April 2016.
During the workshop we plan to allocate a significant amount of time for open discussion sessions, following invited reviews and/or contributed talks. A preliminary list of speakers includes Nils Andersson, Pablo Cerdá-Durán, Riccardo Ciolfi, Kostas Glampedakis, Bryn Haskell, Wynn Ho, Ian Jones, Sam Lander, and Nanda Rea.

The venue is located at the campus of the University of Alicante, which is 20 minutes (by taxi) from Alicante international airport. The Campus is connected with the  centre of Alicante by public transportation (bus or tram) in 20/25 minutes. As for similar WG meetings, a limited budget is allocated to support NewCompstar members with the usual COST rules.

Registration is now open until FEBRUARY 15th, by sending an email to jose.pons@ua.es or passamonti@ua.es with subject “Alicante WG meeting” and the following information:
