After celebrating 50 years of pulsars in Jodrell Bank, it is now time to capture the exciting results presented during the symposium in conference proceedings. The proceedings for “Pulsar Astrophysics – The Next 50 Years” will be published by Cambridge University Press. Electronic access to the proceedings is included in the conference fee, and it becomes public 18 months after publication. We can buy hard copies in bulk. If you wish to do so, please contact the LOC as soon as possible (
