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:
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 fourteenth of the series - will maintain the tradition of the workshops organized since 1991 at Cracow. The proceedings of the MESON2016 workshop have been published in EPJ Web of Conferences Vol. 130 (2016).
- hadronic and electromagnetic meson production,
- meson interaction with mesons, nucleons and nuclei,
- structure of hadrons,
- fundamental symmetries,
- exotic systems,
- novel approaches in theory and experiment.
A poster session is foreseen as an opportunity for students and young scientists to present the results of their work. There will be a competition for the best posters. Apart from attractive prizes, the author of the best poster will be asked to present her/his work orally during one of the sessions on Monday afternoon.
