The Institute of Physics of Jagiellonian University, Forschungszentrum Jülich, INFN-LNF Frascati and Institute of Nuclear Physics PAS Cracow are organizing a biennial workshop to establish closer contacts between experimentalists and theorists involved in the studies of meson production, properties and interaction. The workshop will cover lectures on both experimental and theoretical aspects, in particular the presentation of new results.
The main topics of the workshop are:
- hadronic and electromagnetic meson production,
- meson interaction with mesons, baryons, ground state nuclei as well as
hot and dense nuclear matter,
- structure of hadrons,
- precision measurements as tests of fundamental symmetries,
- exotic systems in QCD,
- novel approaches in theory and experiment.
The intention is to provide an overview of the present status in these fields, as well as of new developments, and a preview of the forthcoming investigations. This workshop – the sixteenth of the series – will maintain the tradition of the workshops organized since 1991 at Cracow.
