A pulsar, known for its extremely high density, electromagnetic field and gravity, is the rump left behind after a supernova explosion of an evolved massive star. Pulsars are not only interesting objects for us to understand various astronomical phenomena, but also testbed for fundamental laws (e.g., the nature of gravitational and strong forces) and tools to detect nano-Hz gravitational wave. Besides science, pulsar study is meaningful for time standard as well as navigation. Advanced facilities (e.g., FAST, HXMT and SKA) are thus focus on pulsar sciences.
Radio astronomy plays an important role in astronomy and astrophysics, in the past, now and in the future. Chinese FAST, the biggest single-dish radio telescope to be built, will not only promote science and technology in China but also be beneficial to world-wide scientists of radio astronomy. Focusing on the scientific goals that FAST could achieve in the future, the National Basic Research Program of China has founded a project (so-called “973 project”) to do science around FAST. As part of the project, the pulsar group is organizing annual meeting to gather pulsar astronomers to exchange ideas on recent developments, provoke discussion and foster collaboration. Even after finishing the 973 project, we are continuing the annual FPS meeting.
此外，为了更好地加强会后的学术交流，我们每次FPS会议之后编辑文集。所有与会学者（包括做口头报告和没有做口头报告的）都被邀请撰写（一两页）以作为我们共同的“历史记忆”。作者撰文风格各异，非常适合大家在紧张科研工作闲暇之余“消遣”、明理。Additionally, FPS proceedings would be printed after FPS meetings. Participants are invited to present concisely her/his academic reviews of the last year.
We would like to organize FPS (FAST Pulsar Symposium) series every year. Previous meetings could be found below
