The PANDA experiment, will make use of a high energy, high intensity antiproton beam and  will operate at the ongoing Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) at GSI, in Darmstadt. 

The PANDA Collaboration (Proton ANnihilation at Darmstadt) gathers more than 500 scientists from 18 countries who intend to study topics in fundamental research related to weak and strong forces, exotic states of matter and the structure of hadrons.

At present, the experiment is in a very advanced state of design and prototyping, supported by simulations of the most important physics benchmarks.

We took the occasion of the PANDA Collaboration meeting to organize a Workshop on Hadron Spectroscopy with the aim of reviewing status and progresses in the field and related aspects of hadron physics.
