We are pleased to announce an international workshop on theories of high energy astrophysics. The main topics of the workshop are listed below, although it is not limited to these areas. We aim to cover a wide field of astrophysical research.

  • neutron stars
  • neutron star mergers
  • gravitational waves
  • gamma-ray bursts
  • supernovae
  • supernova remnants

This workshop aims to assemble leading experts in various fields of theoretical high energy astrophysics for vibrant discussions and to foster new collaborations among participants.
