is the 21st in a series of bi-annual conferences which began in 1985
in Manchester, UK. The scope is to review the present status and achievements
in hadron spectroscopy and the related aspects of hadron dynamics.
This conference will be organized by the INFN at the Laboratori Nazionali
di Frascati, where the only running Phi-factory in the world is located.
Venue and Date
The conference will be held from October 8th to 13th, 2007 at the
Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati of INFN (Italy). Frascati is the
most famous of the so called "Castelli Romani", a series
of small towns in the hills overlooking Rome to the south-east. The
centre of Rome is easily accessible by train in 20 minutes.
The topics to be discussed as part of the scientific programme
are the following:
- spectroscopy of light and heavy quark mesons;
- glueballs, hybrids and multiquarks;
- phenomenological models;
- effective lagrangians;
- QCD on the lattice;
- hadrons in matter;
- heavy ion collisions;
- future facilities.
The programme will consist of plenary, parallel and poster sessions.The
Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is in the process of inviting the
speakers for the plenary talks. In addition the LOC will select the
talks for the parallel sessions and the contributions for the poster
sessions among the abstracts submitted before May
To date the invited talks for the plenary sessions include:
Hadronic physics: Status and Perspectives; Historical Talk on the
Hadron Spectroscopy; Lattice-QCD in Hadron Physics; Perturbative Theory
and Regge Behaviour; Antiproton Physics at FAIR; Medium effects in
pi/K-nuclear interactions; BES II-Recent Results and Future Aspects;
Spectroscopy Experiments at JLAB; Hadronic physics at Juelich ; Hadrons
in Medium; The Sigma, Kappa-problem in the scalar meson sector; Experimental
approaches in Meson spectroscopy; Hadron Physics with BaBar; Hadron
Physics with Belle; Status of QCD; Heavy Ion Phenomenology; Hadrons
and Strings; Light Hadrons in Chiral perturbation Theory; Lattice
QCD in Hadron Physics; Hadron Physics at the Tevatron; Prospects for
Hadron Physics at LHC Experiments.
Poster Sessions will be held in the morning, from Tuesday through
Thursday, during the coffee breaks. The available space is 110cm x
85cm (height x width).
Call for Contributions
A single-page abstract for each contribution is required and must
be sent by means of the Registration web-page of the Conference. The
