Neutron stars represent unique laboratories to test physics under extreme conditions, hardly reproducible with terrestrial experiment. As isolated and binary sources, they provide the essential link between gravity in the strong field regime, the state of matter at supra-nuclear densities and high energy astrophysical phenomena. The first discovery of gravitational waves emitted by two merging neutron stars has also marked the dawn of the multi-messenger astronomy. The future after GW170817 is rich of promising opportunities that will shed new light on old problems and will raise, at the same time, further questions to be addressed.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists working on different aspects of relativistic astrophysics related to neutron stars, to discuss the status and the future directions of the field.

The scientific program of the conference will include the following topics: 
  - Numerical and analytical modelling of binary neutron star sources
  - Phases of dense nuclear matter
  - Extraction of the stellar equation of state from gravitational and electromagnetic observations
  - Connection between binary mergers and gamma ray bursts
  - Multi-messenger astrophysics
