Physics of Neutron stars 2014

The Physics of Neutron Stars meeting is held approximately every three years, and honors prominent Soviet physicist Yakov Zel'dovich. The conference talks and posters covered a very wide range of topics relevant to neutron stars, from pulsar emission mechanisms to magnetars and supernova explosions. I gave a talk on observations of thermonuclear bursts. The organisers offered a cultural program including excursions to prominent attractions in this beautiful city; I chose to visit the Catherine Palace and park, with a boat ride of the extensive canal network to follow. Very nice conference in a terrific venue.
