Bremen, Germany, July 18-25 (2010); Event E19 July 22-24 (2010)

Event Description: As the most significant source of chemical enrichment and energy input in the interstellar medium, supernova remnants (SNRs) offer us a most valuable laboratory to study heavy element nucleosynthesis, particle acceleration at fast shocks, and the physics of the extreme associated with neutron stars (NSs) and associated pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe). Thanks to current multi-wavelength state-of-the-art missions and surveys such as HESS, Chandra, XMM-Newton, Suzaku, Spitzer, and the International Galactic Plane Survey, much has been learnt about the physics of SNRs and PWNe; and the number of SNRs-NSs associations has increased by over an order of magnitude in the past decade. Much is also anticipated with the successful launch of Fermi (formerly GLAST) and the upcoming launch of ASTROSAT. This session will focus on the latest multi-wavelength studies, coupled with theoretical modeling and simulations, targeted to address the physics of SNRs and particularly their association and interaction with PWNe and NSs.
