15-18 February 2022
Schlosshotel Rheinfels, St. Goar, Germany
Europe/Berlin timezone

Cancelled due to the Covid 19 Omircon wave.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together leading international experts and young researchers on

 - Bound states in quantum field theory
 - Baryons, mesons, glueballs, and exotics in QCD
 - Excited state spectroscopy
 - Resonances and decays
 - Strongly-interacting dark matter
 - Bound states beyond QCD

to present and discuss recent developments and fundamental issues.

This workshop focuses mainly on theoretical aspects, but will also include overview presentations of experiments.

The number of participants is limited to about 40. About a half of the time will be filled with shorter contributed talks, in particular from young researchers. Ample time is foreseen for discussions. A permanent presentation of posters will be possible.

Confirmed invited speakers so far (more to come):

  • Chris Bouchard (Glasgow, UK)
  • Sara Collins (Regensburg, Germany)
  • Volker Crede (Florida, USA)
  • Gernot Eichmann (Lisboa, Portugal)
  • Theresa Fruth (London, UK)
  • Wolfgang Gradl (Mainz, Germany)
  • Renwick J. Hudspith (Mainz, Germany)
  • Patrick Koppenburg (NIKHEF, Netherlands)
  • Suchita Kulkarni (Graz, Austria)
  • Maria Paolo Lombardo (INFN, Italy)
  • Maxim Mai (Washington DC, USA)
  • Eulogio Oset (Valencia, Spain)
  • Elisabetta Prencipe (Giessen, Germany)
  • Adam Szczepaniak (Indiana, USA)
  • Oliver Witzel (Siegen, Germany)
The conference fee is 380 Euro. The fee includes lunch and dinner from Monday evening until Friday noon. Detailed guidance for payment will be provided after acceptance of participation. We can offer limited financial support upon request.
We are looking forward to the usual format of extended talks, intense face to face discussions and relaxed interactions that made the conference so successful in the past. Participants need to be either fully vaccinated, or recovered from COVID. In addition, official immigration rules for Germany may apply.

This workshop is the eighth at St. Goar on QCD, following the workshops Bound States in QCD and beyond I-III in 2015, 2017, and 2019, the HIC-for-FAIR workshops on Quarks, Gluons, and Hadronic Matter under Extreme Conditions I in 2011 and II in 2013, the EMMI workshop: Quarks, Hadrons, and the QCD Phase Diagram in fall 2009 and the 415th Wilhelm & Else Heraeus Seminar "Quarks and Hadrons in strong QCD" in spring 2008.
