The GlueX and PANDA experiments are and will be world leading hadronic-physics facilities, which are complementary in studying the dynamics of the strong interaction.  The PANDA experiment features a modern multipurpose detector in combination with a high-quality antiproton beam at the HESR to address important questions in all aspects of this field by collecting large statistics and high-quality exclusive data to test QCD in the non-perturbative regime. The linearly polarized photon beam and GlueX's large acceptance detector provide a unique capability to study the spectrum of mesons produced in photoproduction. The GlueX collaboration recently completed collecting data in the initial low-intensity phase, with many analyses already underway.  This workshop will focus on fostering collaboration between the two communities in many aspects, e.g. common detector and data acquisition aspects and the development of common analysis techniques for ongoing GlueX analyses and preparation for PANDA.
