Abstract: Millisecond pulsars are old neutron stars that have been "spun up" to millisecond spin periods by accreting matter from an orbiting companion star. A subclass of these objects are known as Spiders: millisecond pulsars with low-mass semi-degenerate companion stars that are heated and evaporated by the intense high-energy pulsar wind. This behaviour has led to them being nicknamed as "black widows" and "redbacks", after species of spiders that are infamous for devouring their companions after…

Abstract: In the search for astrophysical neutrinos, neutrino telescopes instrument large volumes of clear natural water. Photomultiplier tubes placed along mooring lines detect the Cherenkov light of secondary particles produced in neutrino interactions. This allow us to search for possible neutrino sources in the sky. To overcome the challenges of deep underwater experiments, we are developing prototype mooring lines in collaboration with Ocean Networks Canada, an initiative of the University of…

Abstract: We announce that the 17th Russbach School on Nuclear Astrophysics will again take place at the village of Rußbach am Paß Gschütt, southeast of Salzburg, Austria. The school dates will be from March 15 (arrival and registration) to March 21 (departure) 2020. This school belongs to the European Network of Nuclear Astrophysics Schools (ENNAS). We shall limit the number of participants to about 60 to ensure a convivial atmosphere, and the possibility to share dinners between all participants. In…

Abstract: The study of the dynamic Universe on all astronomical scales allows us to pinpoint the underlying physical processes that not only lead to the formation of stars and planets from the turbulent interstellar medium, but also determine the structure of the Universe on the largest observable scales.  The meeting is organised in honour of Professor Andi Burkert and to celebrate his 60th birthday. The workshop highlights the various dynamical processes covered by Andi's work and brings together…
