The “Physics at the Magnetospheric Boundary” conference is aimed at bringing together specialists working theoretically, numerically and observationally on processes occurring at the limit of the magnetically dominated region around accreting objects such as neutron stars, white dwarfs, and T Tauri stars, where the surrounding hot plasma is finally captured.

Different manifestations of similar physical processes occur in this wide variety of celestial sources and have been investigated since the 1960’s by different scientific communities.
The conference represents a precious opportunity of exchange between research groups working on the topic of accretion, across different wavelengths and source types. It poses the basis for the next steps forward in our understanding of the physics at the magnetospheric boundary.

Planned sessions for this conference include:

Theory of accretion onto magnetized stars
Numerical modelling of plasma-field interaction: accretion and jets production
Observational clues to the physics at the magnetosphere
Future perspectives in theory and observations
