-scintillometry workshop ​2017 in Toronto, ​week Oct 16.+ 
 +======Pulsar Scintillometry with VLBI====== 
 +=====Toronto,​ Ontario, Canada ===== 
 +=====October 16th to October 20th, 2017===== 
 +2017 is the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of the pulsar and Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). ​ In the past twenty years, VLBI has been used in pulsar observations to study pulsar scintillation and scattering due to density variations in the ionized interstellar medium (IISM). ​ With VLBI, it is possible to characterize and in some cases image the scattered image of the pulsar. ​ This workshop will focus on recent progress made in this area, including theory of scintillation,​ new results and improvement of techniques in the investigation of the ISM through pulsar observations,​ the characterization of pulsar scintillation and removal of pulsar scintillation from observations,​ and the study of pulsars using the scattered images to obtain very high spatial resolution. 
 +Venue : Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics,​ 
 +14th Floor, McLennan Physical Laboratories,​ 
 +60, St. George Street, 
 +University of Toronto, 
 +Toronto, ​ON M5S 3H8.
