2nd Circular

                    Second Circular
    YITP international workshop on Hadron in Nucleus
     31st October (Thu.) to 2nd November (Sat.) 2013
          Maskawa hall in Kyoto University
      (Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics)

- About the Workshop -

The workshop will focus on recent experimental and theoretical 
development of hadron in nucleus and in-medium properties of 
hadron from the fundamental theory of the strong interaction, 
Quantum Chromodynamics. The topics covered by the workshop will be 

- strong interaction between hadron and nucleus in hadronic atoms, 
  such as, pionic atoms, kaonic atoms, and Xi atoms
- structure, decay processes and production reactions of mesonic nucleus
- role of baryon resonances in mesonic nuclei, such as Lambda(1405) 
  in kaonic nucleus and N(1535) in eta mesonic nucleus
- hadron and dilepton productions in nucleus
- eta' mesonic nucleus and UA(1) quantum anomaly in nuclear medium
- heavy meson (D, B, J/psi, etc.) in nucleus
- partial restoration of chiral symmetry in nucleus
- elementary hadron interaction

This workshop is a satellite workshop of the Hadron 2013 international 
conference held in Nara from 4th to 8th November. Nara is located 
about 40 km south of Kyoto and easy to access from Kyoto.
