Institute of Astronomy of National Tsing Hua University is pleased
to host the 2nd Fermi Asian Network (FAN) workshop. The FAN
collaboration consists of high-energy astrophysicists mainly from
Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea, and we are aiming to answer some of the
major astrophysical problems by using Fermi data. Over the last
we have published a series of papers with a focus on compact objects.
order to review our effort and expand our collaboration, we will hold
the 2nd workshop in Taiwan. The theme of this workshop will be on
compact objects and their environment. We would like to address
pressing problems in the general context related to compact objects.
The core topics of the workshop will cover
* Millisecond pulsars
* Gamma-ray binaries
* Fermi transients
* Unidentified Fermi objects
* Supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulae
mnants and pulsar wind nebulae
The emphasis of this workshop will be on both discussions and formal
presentations. Our program will include several talks per day, with the
of the time devoted to informal discussions and working sessions. We
will also hold a mini hand-on training course to help students and
analyze Fermi data.However, such format can not accommodate a large
group. Thus the total number of participants will be limited to
Lucas Guillemot (MPIfR)
Jun Kataoka (Waseda)
Roger Romani (Stanford)
Bronek Rudak (Torun)
There is no registration fee and everyone is invited to participate in this workshop. We will provide accommodation support (on sharing
basis) for overseas and non-NTHU students. You are encouraged to make
contributed talk related to the workshop. The workshop will provide
lunches, tea/coffee breaks, and a conference dinner (August 3).
registration deadline is on June 30, 2011. Due to the limited space,
priority will be given to those with contributed talks.

Block-booked accommodation will be provided in the guest house of NTHU or a
nearby hotel. The rate is about NTD1800 per night including breakfast.
If you are a student (overseas or non-NTHU), we will provide financial support (on sharing room basis) for the nights from July 31 to August 5. Please indicate if you need financial support and whether you want
to share room with other student.
