Welcome to XXXVI SSI 2008

Aug 4th - Aug 15, 2008
Stanford Linear Accelerator Center
Menlo Park, California

Morning lectures will focus on the physics of nature's cosmic accelerators, such as black holes, neutron stars and giant shock waves, and the high energy particles they create. In the afternoons, topical conference talks will alternate with discussion sessions, tours, and social events.
