Hadron Physics Summer School 2014
The Hadron Physics Summer School 2014 (HPSS2014) was jointly organized by scientists from the Institut für Kernphysik of the Jülich Center for Hadron Physics, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and the Universities Bonn, Bochum and Giessen. The summer school was jointly financed by Forschungszentrum Jülich, the Helmholtz International Center for FAIR, the Transregio TR16 (Subnuclear Structure of Matter) funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the Collaborative Research Center CRC110 (Symmetries and the Emergence of Structure in QCD) funded by DFG and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
The school comprised lectures and working groups (from which each participant joined one) on theoretical, experimental, and accelerator aspects. The focus was on current issues in hadron physics with emphasis on the latest programs at the accelerators COSY (Jülich) and ELSA (Bonn), also featuring future FAIR projects like HESR/PANDA, PAX and the search for electric dipole moments of charged particles in storage rings (JEDI).
The school attended by about 50 graduate and advanced undergraduate students from various countries. This year, the school was directly preceeded by a Hadron Physics Summer Preschool (HPSP2014) with the aim to prepare a limited group of undergraduate students for the participation in HPSS2014. The preschool was sponsored by the European Commission HadronPhysics3/MesonNet project.
We would appreciate if you announce this school to students, for whom the program might be of interest and/or post the poster (see top page) in your institute. Limited funds for travel expenses are available making the participation of young motivated students into this challenging enterprise possible.
