The workshop, to be held at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology (IPPP) at Durham University, brings together the nuclear and particle physics communities to discuss the latest developments (experimental and theoretical) in exotic and conventional hadron spectroscopy.
The spectrum of hadrons has become increasingly rich in recent years, owing to ongoing experimental discoveries at both particle and nuclear physics experiments. The properties of known states have been measured with improved precision, and many new states (both conventional and exotic) have been discovered. Often similar states and search methods are discussed separately in the particle and nuclear physics communities, with little interaction between them. This workshop facilitates communication between these communities, with the ultimate aim of improving our understanding of the spectrum of hadrons. A particular focus is new analysis methods and search strategies for current and future experimental facilities (CERN, JLab, Mainz, BESIII, BelleII, PANDA).
This is the fourth in a series of workshops on this topic, following previous events at the University of Edinburgh and the University of York:
Thanks to financial support from the IPPP, The Royal Society and the Institute of Physics, there is no registration fee and we expect to be able to provide tea/coffee breaks, two lunches and one dinner at no cost to participants.
We have a limited amount of funding to support early-stage researchers with limited budgets interested in attending this workshop. If you want to apply for this funding, please contact the organisers with your CV, details of your current position, and a brief summary (1 paragraph) of why you would like to attend and how you would contribute to the workshop. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
The deadline for abstracts is 20 February 2023 and the deadline for registration is 20 March 2023.
Some accommodation will be available in Collingwood College -- see the accommodation page for details. Information on how to get to Durham, the IPPP and Collingwood College is available on Travel to Durham page.
Organising Committee: Ben Pecjak (Durham), Bryan McKinnon (Glasgow), Christopher Thomas (Cambridge), Dan Watts (York), Mark Whitehead (Glasgow), Mikhail Bashkanov (York), Muhammad Naeem Anwar (Swansea), Tim Burns (Swansea).
