I am delighted to announce that my colleagues and I are organizing a conference in Ierapetra, Crete, between the 16th and 20th of June, 2014. The theme we have chosen is:
Extreme Astrophysics in an Ever-Changing Universe
Time-Domain Astronomy in the 21st Century
As the title suggests, the meeting will cover the broad subject of “time-domain” astronomy with a focus on observations, instrumentation and theory of compact objects, such as neutron stars, black holes and white dwarfs. Our ambition is to bring together the different communities working on this broad range of topics and provide a forum for the exchange of news, ideas and techniques.
In addition, on the occasion of his retirement, the conference will celebrate the life-long achievements of John H. Seiradakis whose approach to science, education and life has been — and still is — an inspiration to many of us!
