While ordinary nuclei in Nature are composed of up and down quarks, 

there exist four more flavors of quarks in the strong interaction. 
Adding a different flavor into nuclei, such as strangeness and charm, 
has drawn much interest of nuclear physicists in recent years. 
For instance, the Lambda hyperon (baryon with strangeness) and 
the antikaon (meson with strangeness) in nuclei are studied theoretically and experimentally. 
These studies are important not only to elucidate the basic two-body interactions 
but also to understand the properties of dense hadronic matter, 
because strangeness degrees of freedom are thought to emerge naturally 
when the density increases. Intensive discussions are being pursued 
on the effect of hadrons with strangeness on the equation of state of 
the dense hadronic matter, which is closely related to the structure of neutron stars. 
Recent spectroscopic experiments of heavy flavored hadrons have found 
many new unexpected hadronic systems, called XYZ states and pentaquarks, 
indicating the important role played by the heavy (charm and bottom) quark flavors in hadrons. 
At the same time, the rapid development of Lattice QCD enables us 
to address many issues in hadron physics from first principles. 
In this workshop, we would like to discuss the physics of hadrons and 
dense matter from the viewpoints of strangeness and charm flavors.
