Two of our members (Kai Schwenzer and Tolga Guver) won prestigious Simons Foundation Fellowships to perform research and attend conferences at the Aspen Center for Physics Colorado USA.
Our members will go at different dates to the center during this summer to attend workshops “Neutron Stars: Linking Nuclear Physics of the Interior to Electromagnetic Observations and Gravitational Radiation” and “Astrophysics of Gravitational Radiation Sources and Multimessenger Astronomy in the Era of LIGO Detections” and also do research on astrophysics.
Tuğba Boztepe and Eda Vurgun attended Annual NewCompStar Conference in Warsaw with a poster presentation on “X-ray bounds on the r-mode amplitude in millisecond pulsars“.
We are very happy to announce that Eda Vurgun and Tuğba Boztepe has been granted full financial support to attend Annual NewCompStar Conference 2017 in Warsaw, while Duygu Durmuş also has been granted full financial support to attend the The Fourth Azarquiel School of Astronomy: a Bridge between East and West.
Further details on their contributions to these meetings will be posted after their attendance. We congratulate our members for their success.
We invite you to submit an abstract for a contributed oral or poster
presentation for Special Session SS6 “Exploring Neutron Star Structure
by Timing and Spectroscopy” to be held during EWASS2017 in Prague, Czech
Republic. Information about EWASS 2017 and our special session can be
